Dry Suit Diver Course

Some of the most beautiful diving visibility and marine life you will ever see can be found in cold water. It’s just, well… cold! So how do we solve this problem? A dry suit of course!

With an SDI Dry Suit Diver Specialty Course, you’ll gain a strong understanding of Dry Suit theory and practical skills, all under the guidance of one of our experienced instructors; and with our proudly established small course ratios. We are also extremely delighted to have access to a range of much-lauded SANTI drysuits for use on our courses.

You’ll learn how to use and maintain a dry suit, and understand its practical uses for a variety of situations. Be it for a dive holiday overseas to a colder climate, or an understandable desire to dive year-round in Australian waters whilst warm and cozy, we’ll help you achieve a goal of confidence and competence!

Course Approach


Prior to starting to the course, you will do a small amount of e-learning. This will take approximately 3-6 hours, and provide a solid understanding in:

  • Types of drysuits
  • Types of seals
  • Features of suits
  • Dive wear insulations (undergarments)
  • Drysuit valves
  • Buoyancy control
  • Maintenance and care
  • Dry suit emergencies

Course Day: 8am – 4pm

On the day we will start with a revision of theory in the classroom, and you’ll have a chance to ask whatever questions you need answers.

Following this will be a confined water session in our in-house pool with the aim of getting comfortable and developing some critical drysuit skills demonstrated by your instructor.

After a short break to grab some food (and some much-needed coffee!) we will be heading to one of our local dive sites to perform two open water dives. Here, you will have the chance to fine-tune your buoyancy skills and once again practice some critical skills… and whereupon meeting the requirements for the course you shall have achieved your SDI Dry Suit Diver certification!
