DRY SUIT DIVING SUMMARY

The Final Word on Dry Suit Diving

As we have seen, there are really two primary reasons to dive a dry suit:

  • Air is cold or there is a strong wind that will chill you on the surface
  • Dive is below 60 feet (20 meters)

When either of these two conditions exist, a dry suit will always provide superior thermal protection. Of course there something to be said for not getting wet on a dive as well.

If you choose to dive in a dry suit, don’t forget that you will need special training in how to use and care for the suit. This training can be completed in as little as one or two days, so the investment in time is small compared to the return. For more information on the PADI Dry Suit specialty, see the Aquatic Adventures Dry Suit Specailty page.
