Drysuit Diving Specialty Course
Take cold-water diving to the next level with added comfort and safety. Stay DRY underwater! Experience cold-water diving at its best.
We were the first in the state to offer drysuit rentals and training. Learn from our experience! We especially encourage our beginning divers to dive dry. For the northwest diver, drysuit diving is really the only way to stay warm and comfortable. For those divers wishing to dive several times a day, dive over several days, or perform deeper dives, drysuits are the only way to stay warm, comfortable and safe.
Our drysuit training program was originally designed to keep our entry level divers warm and comfortable on their open water dives. (look around on the beach: you won't see hardly any active northwest divers using a wetsuit!)
Our training expanded for all divers who want more information about the suits. Training is free of charge to divers who purchase a suit from us. We offer the very best drysuits in our rental program as well as all the accessories.
