Dry Suit Diver

The Dry Suit Diver Course is designed to teach you to dive safely and stay warm and dry.  A dry-suit will extend your ability to do multiple dives in temperate waters.  It isn't uncommon to see wet-suit divers on a live-aboard call it a day after 2 dives, whilst the dry-suit divers are still going strong after 4 or 5 dives.

Given the close attention required to teach this course, Capital Scuba limits this to training 1 on 1 with your instructor.
