GUE Drysuit course
GUE’s Drysuit Primer course is designed to prepare divers for drysuit diving using proper equipment and techniques. This is far more than a tuck and roll in the pool! The class focuses heavily on bubble management and redundancies, variable ascent rates and diver rescue scenarios. Don't let the end of the summer hold you back, the diving in NZ is great over winter!
