When the nights become longer, the days become shorter and the water gets colder – then the time for taking the PADI Dry Suit Specialty course has come! As late autumn, winter and early spring can get a bit cold in South Australia, Dry Suit Diving is a course that can prove very beneficial. Especially because the visibility tends to be at it’s very best during these times of the year, it’s a great time to get out there! By taking the Dry Suit Specialty, you will learn the advantages of dry suit diving, different suits, valves, underwear and accesories. During the two mandatory dives, you will learn how to dive in a dry suit and you will demonstrate the correct care and maintenance of a dry suit. Never feel cold again after a dive when you’ve taken the Dry Suit Specialty course!
