A Dry Suit keeps you dry and warm in cold waters. There is incredible diving in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, such as British Columbia, conditions are even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, all year round.
Rowand’s Reef are an Aqua Lung Fusion Plus Center, meaning we carry the Fusion Line of Dry Suits. One of the most popular Diving Dry Suits in the Pacific Northwest, you will learn about the benefits and get the opportunity to dive a Fusion Dry Suit during the course.
