Dive Dry PDF Print E-mail

Want to do more local diving, but don't like being cold?  We now rent dry suits.  You can dive year round and be warm and dry while in the water.  CDC now rents White's Fusion Sport dry suit with their unique thermal Fusion underwear.  The Fusion suit is so adjustable that just three sizes fit almost everyone.

If you ever wanted to dive dry but didn't want to make the investment without trying it out first, here's your chance.  If you're not dry suit certified, we can get you into the pool with it and get you certified.  The cost of the class is $95.  If you're already dry suit certified, you can rent the suit right away for less than $50 per day.  Our next dry suit class will be Sunday, April 27 at 11:30 with a pool session that afternoon at 3:00.  Open Water dives are TBD.

If you decide to buy a dry suit within 30 days of your rental, we'll deduct the cost of the class and rental from the purchase price.  Come to CDC and try one of the most popular dry suits in the industry!
