If the shade gets longer, the days get shorter and the water gets colder - then it's time for Dry Suit Diving.
A diver who has a dry suit and knows how to use it will discover fantastic diving opportunities in the autumn and winter, since the visibility is usually better than in the summer. You experience diving with your dry suit in clear water and with only a few divers around you ...
There are divers who also dive at cold temperatures in a wetsuit or semi-dry suit. But divers who want to have fun and who think of their health prefer to dive with a dry suit.
In the Dry Suit Diving program you will learn the benefits of diving with a dry suit, knowledge about different suits, valves, the choice of bottom suits and drysuit accessories. During the 2 mandatory dives the dry diving techniques are correctly applied and you demonstrate the correct care and maintenance of a doogpak.
Most diving instructors of vipdiveschool always dive with a drysuit, the high degree of comfort and the longer dive times are not the only reason, in the Netherlands it is at depth (18+) usually around 4 to 6 degrees (also in summer) and then a drysuit is a great solution!
Do you not have your own drysuit? Then you can rent a complete drysuit set with us!
