What does the PADI Drysuit diver Course Cover?

Looking to dive comfortably in Ireland throughout the year; chilly winter months included? A drysuit is the answer. At Scubadive West we conduct the PADI Drysuit Specialty over one day; training includes classroom time, confined water and open water training. Our experienced (and drysuit clad!) PADI Instructors will teach you procedures and techniques for handling and avoiding potential problems; help you master buoyancy control in a drysuit; and teach you about drysuit maintenance and repair. Price is €210.



Drysuits Provided

Scubadive West is unique in providing drysuits for the course, so you can try one out before committing to a purchase. Our rental dry suits are O'Three neoprene dry suits and we also provide Fourth Element Xerotherm and Arctic thermals. We have a full range of both mens and ladies sizes in our rental stock. Our experienced staff will talk you through the various options; for example membrane versus neoprene; helping you make an informed decision.
