Great dive experiences are not limited to tropical reefs or the warm and sunny summer months. With the proper exposure protection, you can make diving a year-round activity, and experience the amazing diversity of a kelp forest, explore freshwater lakes and rivers, or dive between two continental plates. As with any new piece of equipment, safely diving with a dry suit requires additional training. You must understand what kind of dry suit and undergarments are best suited for your dive experience, how to operate new equipment like exhaust valves, and how to properly use and care for your new equipment. The SSI Dry Suit Diving program teaches you the new skills needed to dive with a dry suit, and provides the in-depth knowledge and experience required to properly use, maintain, and store your new equipment. Our goal is to prepare you for your journey into colder waters, and to ensure you have an enjoyable experience. One pool session and two open water dives are required.
