Water covers about 70% of the earth and most of the water is either temperate or cold. Do you want to stay warm during your dives? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then dive dry!
Dry suit diving requires a different set of skills than warm water diving and as in Iceland we mainly have cold water diving most dive sites require some dry suit experience.
Dry suits let you dive more demanding dive sights and extend your dive season, as getting you equipped to scuba dive some of the world's incredible dive sites in the world's cooler regions.
Completing the dry suit course allows you to dive Silfra!
