The GUE Drysuit Primer introduces a certified diver to diving with a drysuit. Learn about the components of a drysuit system, considerations for diving colder waters, and drysuit diving techniques. Focus is on how and why we manage buoyancy when diving dry as well as refining trim, stability, control, propulsion, maneuvering, team diving, and situational awareness.

  • Refine buoyancy control, stable diving platform, and other basic diving skills while diving dry
