VPDC Dry Suit Course

Description

The waters around Cornwall never get that cold but in the winter the temperature can fall to within the range when drysuits are often worn. Drysuits work a bit differently to wetsuits as they are full of air, which unlike water, can be compressed and can move around within the suit. This can lead to buoyancy issues which in turn can cause safety problems.

For those who want to dive in dry suits without needing a full PADI speciality accreditation, we offer a course consisting of a pool and a sea dive that provides the instruction needed to dive safely in a dry suit in UK waters. The pool session allows the diver to gain an appreciation of the weight required to wear a dry suit to allow sufficient air to be introduced to maintain warmth and the way in which buoyancy is controlled. The sea session allows this learning to be practically applied and to make sure that the diver can stay warm and safe while dry suit diving.

A few of us dive with these and they are greatTitanium is the answer to many of diving's toughest problems.

During our design evolution, we needed to find a material that was incredibly tough: tough enough for years of abuse, yet light enough to easily accompany you on every holiday.

The answer was Titanium.

Just a reminder that you need to contact us to book your slot if you still want to dive with us tomorrow.
With all this rain the viz is very low at all shore dive sites at the moment.
Also if you are coming remember the shack is not open and no loo and it’s freezing in the air - so make sure you bring your own hot drinks and are prepared for the cold.
