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 stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months. As a dry suit diver, you're equipped to scuba dive some of the world's incredible dive sites in the world's cooler regions that are best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months.

The Ocean Pro Difference
We are partnered with Project AWARE, a global non-profit organization that is Protecting Our Ocean Planet - One Dive at a Time. They are focused on the critical issues of Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, and we're supporting
them by donating $10 for every student we certify. With this donation, our students recieve Project AWARE certification cards.
You will need to wear a comfortable set of undergarments under your drysuit - you should wear a base layer to wick any moisture away from your body and a heavy layer of fleece or other thermal wear on top. Wool socks are a must!Stay away from cotton and denim in nature.
Ocean Pro Divers a Fourth Element Test Centre offering the full range of Fourth Element undergarments in store. We currently offer the Halo 3D as part of our test program.
Rent a Halo 3D for only $20. This will be deducted from the subsequent purchase of a new Fourth Element undergarment set on production of the receipt.
We keep our student to instructional staff ratios low to ensure you can progress a pace that is comfortable for you. We keep our numbers to a max of four students to one instructor or less.

Many technical divers wear dry suits due to the length of the time spent underwater. The longer the diver is in the water, the more thermal protection is required. If technical diving is something that interests you, check out the Intro to Tech course
