COVID-19 UPDATE: We have continued to run courses and charters, and have implemented procedures to ensure the safety of our students & staff. We have small group sizes and thorough gear sanitizing, all while distancing and wearing masks.
Experience the world-class diving on our doorstep while staying dry and warm!
A drysuit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable even in surprisingly cold water.
Expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often with the PADI Drysuit Specialty.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
During class and one confined water session in Campbell River, you will learn about:
- types of drysuits
- how to take care of a drysuit
- the basics of diving a drysuit
- buoyancy and safety procedures
WHERE YOU WILL DIVE
After class and confined water sessions, you will take to the ocean off our boat "Ocean Guardian" for two dives to fine-tune your buoyancy and weighting, all while experiencing the amazing diving we have on our doorstep!
You will dive at sites around Campbell River and Quadra Island such as Gowlland Island Bay, Row and be Damned, Rebecca Spit, Grouse Island, and Argonaut Wharf.
WHAT YOU WILL SEE
The marine life around Campbell River is vibrant and colourful, with walls of soft corals, sponges, and anemones. We often find schools and perch and rockfish, lingcod, nudibranchs, and in the summer the bull kelp grows in dense forests. On the surface, you may spot humpback whales, orcas, sealions, and harbour seals.
If you're lucky, you'll get to see our favorite animals such as Grunt Sculpins, Wolfeels, and Giant Pacific Octopus!
AFTER THE COURSE
Enjoy deals on gear rentals and join us on weekly charters to sites around Discovery Passage!
Get fitted for your own drysuit, and explore the customizations you can get on your suit.
