If you want to see the spectacular and prolific aquatic life often found in colder water climates you’ll need to stay warm and that means a drysuit. But, you want to be trained in proper techniques and this is where PADI Drysuit Diver Specialty course comes in.

Why take the PADI Drysuit Diver Specialty?

You can dive more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season. When you have the right cold water scuba diving attire, you can stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months.  You’re equipped to SCUBA dive some of the world’s incredible dive sites in the world’s cooler regions that are best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months.
