Would you like to stay warm and toasty on a dive? Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warm! Even in surprisingly cold water. Dry suits let you dive more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season. When you have the right cold water scuba diving attire, you can better stand up to the elements. As a dry suit diver, you’re equipped to scuba dive some of the world’s incredible but cooler dive sites and these include many Irish west coast dive sites which can be best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months.
