Want to stay warm in these Scottish waters? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then you need to be diving in a dry suit.
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 more places, more often.
If you’re at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course.
The first thing you’ll discover is which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you and the diving you’ll do. Then you’ll learn how to take care of your dry suit. During two dives, in addition to a confined water dive which take place on our Friday evening pool sessions, you’ll practice:
Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.
Mastering buoyancy control using your dry suit.
Dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your Core94 instructor about earning credit.
Stop by Core94 and enroll in the course and pick up a PADI Dry Suit Diver Manual and Dry Suit Diving video. By reading the manual and watching the video before class, you’ll be ready to get into the water with your instructor and start practicing with your dry suit.
Clearly a dry suit is necessary along with your basic scuba equipment. Your Core94 PADI staff will explain other gear or equipment options you may need to dive comfortably with your dry suit. For example, because you’re more buoyant in a dry suit than in a wetsuit, you may want a different weight system setup.
Arrive at the Dive Centre at 35 Waterloo Quay for 6.00pm. Watch the PADI Dry Suit DVD in the centres classroom and then with your PADI Instructor get your equipment set for an evening of adventure in the RGU Sports Centre Pool. The evenings session finishes back at the dive centre, once all your gear has been put away and your log book signed up it's time to shoot away home with tales of adventure.
