Drysuit Diver

Drysuit Diver – $150

Does feeling cold keep you from completely enjoying Southern California scuba diving? You’re not alone. The fact is, the warmer you are underwater, the more fun you will have while diving. And the best way to remain warm–both in the water and after your dive–is to wear a drysuit. Where better to learn drysuit diving than while scuba diving in orange county?
 
A drysuit keeps water out and an insulating undergarment underneath keeps body heat in–to ensure that you are comfortable and happy while exploring the magical underwater world.
 
This drysuit course is designed to teach you the ins and outs of your drysuit both in the pool and the open ocean. You will conduct 1 pool session to familiarize yourself with your new drysuit and then our professional staff will take you to the ocean for 2 open ocean dives!
