The PADI Drysuit Diver course is ideal for anyone who wants to be toasty warm while diving! A drysuit seals you off from the water, hugely increasing your warmth but also adding some extra considerations for your diving. 

There is fantastic diving available throughout the winter months here in NZ, with the cooler water bringing improved vis. If you're considering exploring technical diving, the PADI Drysuit Diver is a great first step as a drysuit is often seen as essential equipment for conducting longer and deeper dives.
All required PADI materials are included and for you to keep. The PADI certification fee is also included.

Some PADI Specialty courses are scheduled on demand, so just get in touch to enquire about the dates for your course!

The PADI Drysuit Diver course consists of two main sections:

  • Theory - Over one weekday evening you will complete the theory section at our Takapuna store. There is some homework for you to complete before these sessions, so make sure you collect your books / register your digital learning code with plenty of time! 
  • Diving - The PADI Drysuit Diver course consists of Confined & Open Water dives with your Instructor, completed locally. We'll always choose the best sites we can based upon the weather conditions! 

Course Prerequisites:
  • Already be at least a certified PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or equivalent.
  • Complete the Dive Medical form. Click here to print the PADI Medical Form for diving. If you answer yes to any of the medical questions you must complete a Dive Medical check with your Doctor and obtain written medical clearance before the start of the course as we can't allow you in the water without it.
  • Students must be at least 15 years of age. Parental consent is required for students aged 15 - 17 years of age.
  • As well as basic dive equipment (which can be rented) you are required to have a safety sausage, compass and knife.
  • You will have homework to compete before the course starts. The course is heaps of fun, but is also intense - we have a lot to learn in our sessions, and they run to a very strict timetable. Failure to complete your homework means that you are behind right from the start, and are holding your group back. This is, understandably, not fair on everyone else and is likely to result in you being removed from the course without refund!
