PADI Drysuit Diver course in October / November 2023
Extend your diving season! If you want to stay warm and toasty, feeling comfortable in cooler water, you will want to dive in a dry suit.
We will be running the PADI Drysuit Diver course in October/November 2023
Pool Orientation session – Saturday 29th October
Lake Dives – Sunday 12th November
Unlike a wetsuit, a Drysuit seals you off from the outside water, this keeps you much warmer, even in surprisingly cold water. This will greatly extend your diving season here in the UK, meaning you can make the most of the autumn, and with the correct undersuit, you could dive throughout the winter.
Using a drysuit will allow you to comfortably go and play with the Seals off of Lundy Island or the Farnes!
You will need to do a small amount of home study before the course, this is all now done with the digital PADI home study eLearning material. You don’t need to come to the shop to get the course arranged and access your digital home study, this part of the course can all be arranged via email, the course can be paid for via BACS or credit card, we will then send you the code for your home study, with instructions how to do this, of course however it would be great to see you before hand, so you can always pop into the centre before the course to arrange it all.
You will need to fill out a short Medical Questionnaire, along with some other standard paperwork, whether you do this via email/phone or in person.
The pool orientation is where you will get to grips with using the drysuit, for this you only need to wear tracksuit bottoms and a long sleeve top, as the thermal undersuit would be too hot in our warm pool. We then get you to the lake to carry out your two qualifying dives in an open water environment.
