PADI Drysuit Diver

Size Guide

Dive Warm. Dive in Style. Dive Dry

Want to stay warm and toasty on long dives or extend your season to year round in Nova Scotia? Then dive dry. Yes! Unlike a wetsuit, 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.
