Dry Suit Diving Specialty Course


Become a dry suit diver and you can dive comfortably all year, anywhere in the world.

"Diving dry" is the best way to extend your dive season, keeps you warmer underwater and allows you to explore cold water dive sites, with ease.


Drysuits let you dive more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season.

With the correct cold water scuba diving attire, you can tolerate the elements and take advantage of the awesome visibility offered by winter months.

Drysuit divers are equipped to scuba dive some of the world’s most incredible dive sites in the worlds cooler regions, that are best enjoyed in a warm comfortable dry suit, even in warmer months.

Our divers have travelled to mystical Iceland, where they dived the legendary Silfra lakes. Here you can touch two continents, underwater.

Dry suit diving also keeps you warm on multi-dive days anywhere, especially when you do not want to spend your time getting in and out of a cold wetsuit.

The Pro-Dive Central Coast Dry Suit Diving specialty program is the best way to become a dry suit diver and teaches you all the knowledge and techniques you need to dive safely and comfortably in a dry suit.

You will learn how to use specialised equipment, like dry suits and BCs, the benefits of dry suits and how to deal with dry suit emergencies – which are unique to this type of diving. Upon completion, you will earn Dry Suit Diving specialty certification.
