PADI Dry Suit Diver

If you love diving and would like to dive all year round then this is the course for you.

The PADI Drysuit Specialty Diver Course shows you how warm you can stay in even the coolest diving conditions and is almost essential for UK diving. A drysuit also has the advantage of keeping you warm and protected from the wind between dives during the summer months.
