SDI Drysuit Diver

Some people may choose never to dive in cooler waters, thinking that it cannot possibly be any fun. Wrong! It is not diving in cold water that is no fun, but being cold... and there is a big difference! To dive comfortably in such waters, you need to ensure that you are using the correct exposure suit. Drysuits are the perfect choice for this type of environment.

Why SDI Drysuit Diver?

Some of the worlds most spectacular and challenging dives can be found in the cooler, more temperate waters of the world - fascinating wrecks, abundant marine life and some amazing underwater landscapes! The SDI Drysuit Speciality is designed to give you the knowledge and skills to safely explore these cooler waters.
