About The Course:

Overview

Learn to laugh at the cold and turn your summer and winter diving into an enjoyable year round activity by Drysuit Diving. If you enjoy diving but find the water just too cold, a drysuit may be just the thing for you. Many people find that Drysuit diving all year long helps them really enjoy New England underwater. This course is designed for new or experienced divers who want to find out about the joy of staying warm and dry while taking the plunge in our own back yard. The Drysuit Diving Course requires 2 dives. These can be completed as a shore dive or boat dive depending on the student requirements and weather conditions. Sign up today.

The course cost's $235 plus rental equipment as needed ($75.00 for drysuit package plus scuba gear if needed). Before buying check out the schedule tab to find out if you can make any of the upcoming courses. The Drysuit course consists of a classroom session, a pool session and a day of open water diving. You can borrow our drysuit for the pool, but you'll have to either own or rent one for the open water dives.

Before Class

Note- All the paperwork you'll need, along with a what to do before class checklist is located in the corresponding tab

Before your course there is a bit of paperwork you'll have to fill out. The most important piece is the medical, which can be printed out and brought to your first classroom session.

Risk Awareness Videos

The most important form to complete before class is the medical. Go through the medical now and check to see if you need to answer "YES" to any of the questions. If so no big deal - you'll just need to get a doctors' sign-off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors' note is in the same file as the medical - Just scroll down to the next page. Remember IF you answer "YES" to anything in the medical it is COMPULSORY to get a doctors' note BEFORE getting in the pool.
