If you want to dive in UK waters and in the colder climates, DRY SUIT DIVING is the course you should take. Most UK diving destinations are best suited to diving in a dry suit as other suits wont provide enough thermal protection.
In your DRY SUIT DIVING program you will learn about the advantages of dry suit diving, different suits, valves, underwear and dry suit accessories.
During the 2 mandatory dives you will apply correct dry diving techniques and demonstrate the correct care and maintenance of a dry suit.
