PADI Dry Suit Diver Certification Course

Unlike wetsuits, drysuits are filled with air. During your PADI drysuit course, your instructor will teach you how to control the air in your drysuit along with your buoyancy.
You'll also learn about different types of drysuits, basic drysuit repairs and maintenance.

You'll practice taking your drysuit on and off, determine how much weight you need, and master basic drysuit skills in a pool before making two open water dives.

Medical Equipment
•    Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
•    Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

Prerequisites & Minimum Age
•    Minimum Age: 10
•    Course prerequisites: most divers enroll in the PADI Dry Suit Diver specialty course after earning their Open Water Diver certification, but in some areas, it's necessary for divers to complete their Open Water course in a drysuit.
•    If you're interested in using a drysuit during your Open Water Diver course, talk to your instructor. To earn the drysuit specialty certification, you'll need to make one additional dive after your Open Water Diver certification. Ask your instructor for more information.

Other Costs & Equipment
•    This course requires both knowledge development and inwater training for certification. When you purchase PADI eLearning (PADI Dry Suit e Learning) from our website, the cost covers the knowledge development portion only. To purchase the PADI book please contact the shop. 
•    In addition to basic scuba gear, you will need to own or rent a drysuit. Investing in your own scuba equipment for the course will help you become comfortable with how it works and the best way to maintain it.

Time Commitment
PADI eLearning: 2-4 hours
Entire course: 2-3 days
