“easy start with drysuit diving”

If you want to spend more time in-water by extending bottom times, increasing depth, or simply diving in colder climates calls for proper thermal protection which can be provided by using a drysuit, this course is for you.

GUE’s Drysuit Primer is a non-certification course designed to prepare divers for drysuit diving using proper equipment and techniques.

You don’t have a drysuit and you are not sure if you want to invest in it? We can organise a demo drysuit from Santi Diving for your course !


The Drysuit Primer is normally conducted over one day. It requires a minimum of two dives and at least eight hours of instruction, encompassing classroom lectures, land drills, and in-water work.

During this training you acquire knowledge and skills in the following areas:

  • types, fitting, and use of drysuits, drysuit inflation systems, and undergarments;
  • cold water diving specifics;
  • buoyancy control and trim practice;
  • management of basic emergencies related to drysuit diving.

Anyone interested in the transition from wetsuit to drysuit to allow for longer dives in colder water will be interested in this course. This training is available for non-GUE trained divers and can serve as a basic introduction to GUE system.
