DRY SUIT DIVER
Does diving end when the Summer’s over? Not at all! It is actually in Winter, when the water is colder, that the sea offers us some of the best dives of the year. This is when there are fewer boats near the coast, reduced numbers of people splashing around in the water, fewer underwater fishers and all this helps sea animals come/get closer to you. Overall it´s alot calmer, more peaceful…and still very enjoyable.
Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then Dive Dry. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. There is incredible diving in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive in more locations, more often. A dry suit is different to a wet suit in that it’s watertight. Being full of air, the suit also needs air compensating as we get into the water, if we don’t the suit ends up compressing against the body. For this reason, the course focuses on learning to compensate both the air in the dry suit as for in bouyancy compensator jackets & on mastering bouyancy control using new techniques of this speciality. It is also very important to learn how to take care of your dry suit.
