Dry Suit Course
San Diego offers some of the most spectacular diving in the world, and the water is, well...chilly. So, do you wanna stay warm and toasty on a dive? If you said "yes" then you want to dive dry. Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warm! Even in surprisingly cold water.
The Fun Part
Dry suits let you dive more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season. When you have the right cold water scuba diving attire, you can stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months-especially at inland dive sites such as quarries, lakes, sinkholes and caves etc. As a dry suit diver, you're equipped to scuba dive some of the world's incredible dive sites in the world's cooler regions that are best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months.
