Diving in cold water is not an issue... "Being" cold, is! And a dry suit is a good tool to let you dive, dive, dive without being cold ;)
Diving with a drysuit allows you to enjoy scuba diving around Montreal, all year round. In fact... It allows you more fun in diving all over the World! There are divers using a drysuit in the Bahamas. To dive a lot, comfort and warmth matter.
It's a specialty course for certified scuba divers.
PADI standards state that the minimum age for dry suit diving is 10 years old. However... Good luck at finding a dry suit that fits a 10 years old! It's normally taught to adult divers.
You'll need a new medical questionnaire, even if you've completed another PADI course with us recently. However, you may not have to obtain a new doctor signature. Details, here.
First: One pool session, with your dry suit (normally on a Wednesday evening at the Aquadome). Then: 2 dives in open water at the Kahnawake quarry.
Of course, you can also request a private course (additional fee) and, then... It's fully up to you! ;)
You need the PADI Dry Suit Diving Specialty manual which is included in the price of this course. You need to read it and do the "knowledge reviews" before our first meeting.
The cost of the PADI certification card is also included, as well as the entry fee to the Kahnawake Quarry, if that is where we'll be diving. If the diving is somewhere else, each diver covers the dive boat or dive site fees, if any.
You need all your standard dive gear plus a dry suit, as well as a dry suit hose on your regulator first stage. We normally give this training to divers who own a dry suit or have just purchased one. We believe a dry suit needs to be well fitted for your body and you'll need about 10 dives in your dry suit before feeling comfortable. This is why we strongly suggest you own a drysuit!
For our courses, we include air refills for the cylinders you've rented from us, if you do them at a Total Diving fill station.
If you decide to buy a Fusion drysuit package from Whites, at Total Diving, after the completion of your Fusion drysuit diver certification, you'll receive a $200 rebate. In other words, your course will be refunded!
Vice versa, if you buy a Whites Fusion drysuit package at Total Diving, we will give you the Fusion drysuit diver certification course for free!
