DRY SUIT DIVER

The Dry Suit Diver Course will open up a whole new world of diving to you. Many of the diving environments around the world are better experienced in a dry suit. Why? These areas have an abundance of marine life waiting to be seen and photographed – they just happen to be a little colder! Dry suits are also used in tropical water during the cooler months.

This course allows you student to develop the knowledge and skills to properly use a dry suit. We will also discuss the types of dry suits, accessories, maintenance and how to make basic repairs.

At MK Scuba Diving we like to keep the group as small as possible to ensure that our instructors have plenty of time to look after you without rushing. If you have selected the Standard pack, you will be within a group of two students maximum and just yourself with the 1-2-1 package.

We use different pools for the confined water dives:

  • Wolverton Leisure Centre – Addington Ave, Wolverton, Milton Keynes MK12 5GH
  • Leon Leisure Centre – Fern Grove, Bletchley, Milton Keynes MK2 3HQ
  • Inspire swimming pool – Butterfield Green Road, Luton LU2 8DD

For the open water dives we use mainly Stoney Cove – Sapcote Rd, Stoney Stanton, Leicester LE9 4DW. This is formal quarry which has great facilities and is ideal for dive training. They have a shop, gas filling station, changing rooms with showers and a pub where we usually go to debrief and fill out our log books!
