The PADI Dry Suit Specialty course is a great course to complete during the cooler months. On Gozo, between November and May is an ideal time when our waters are cooler. If you want to stay warm and comfortable for longer, dry suit diving is the best way! A dry suit seals your body off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in cold water. Staying warm throughout your dive allows you to extend your scuba season. If you have bought a dry suit and you want to learn how to use it, come and take the PADI Dry Suit Specialty course with us.
