Questions about Scuba Fusion Drysuit Diver Specialty

Is it difficult to dive in a drysuit?
No, but for safety reasons using a drysuit does take some practice. Drysuits are generally used for buoyancy control instead of the jacket once underwater. This requires a pool and or ocean dive to adjust.
Is there any homework with this drysuit program?
Yes, as usual with a Padi program there is some knowledge development needed. Students can choose to save money by using the manual. The Padi drysuit diver eLearning program is also an option but will cost more at checkout.
Do I need to get drysuit certified to buy a drysuit?
No, certification is not required to purchase a drysuit in most areas. However a drysuit certification is needed to be able to rent one in all areas. The drysuit certification is highly recommended for safety reasons.
What are the prerequisites for this drysuit diving program?
You must be 12 years of age or older and hold a valid scuba certification from a known agency.
Is a drysuit included for use with the class?
Yes, at no charge we provide each student with a drysuit to use during the entire course.
Do I have to size for the suit?
Yes, students need to visit the store a week or more before the class begins. Divers need to try on their training suit. Suit availability is limited. If we don’t have your size we can hopefully order and have it arrive before the class begins. Do not size for your drysuit last minute. As usual a liability and a medical questionnaire must be signed. Certain “yes” answers will send a student to the doctor.
How much does the drysuit course cost?
Drill down to your selected class to see pricing.
Why learn to dive in a drysuit?
To stay warm while diving Monterey is the number 1 answer! Staying dry means you will be warmer. If you are warm and comfortable then diving Monterey and other cold water sites such as Seattle become completely doable. A nice ancillary benefit to diving dry is that the suit is filled with air so floating at the surface becomes so much more comfortable than a wetsuit.
