THEORY

ONLINE

Unlike the traditional method used by many Singapore Scuba Dive Centres, we have moved all our teaching classes online since the pandemic. Students are happier now and learn more efficiently, even the cost is slightly more expensive.

POOL

ANY SUNDAY

Due to restrictions on usage of the pool for scuba diving, we only have an option for Sunday. Weekdays are possible but the pool allow for scuba diving is relatively dark. So we will prefer to conduct training on Sunday.

2 OCEAN DIVES

WEEKEND

You will be required to complete 2 training dives, spread over a weekend. Most dives are done on weekend, either a Saturday or Sunday, all subjected to the availability of the boats.

PADI Drysuit Diver Course local

Who should take this course up

Orpheus Dive has been training scuba divers who are preparing for their dive trips to Silfra and Tec Divers in drysuit training since 2016.

Catering to the demands and needs of Singapore Scuba Divers heading to Silfra in Iceland, diving in extremely cold conditions between two continents, we have increased our rental drysuits to cater to scuba divers of all sizes.

Being the only scuba diving centre that is able to offer the Drysuit Specialty Diving Course in Singapore, we can get busy. So please book your course in advance before your next Tec Diving Course or Silfra Diving Expedition.

“Repeated exposure to temperate waters can cause minor discomfort to turn into hypothermia. By staying dry even in warm waters, your comfort level increases and you can maximize the length and number of your dives. After all, you are on vacation.”

– PADI Master Instructor, Lester Kwok

Divers also have to be wary of hypothermia in warm environments. A phenomenon called “warm water hypothermia” can occur even in the tropics, especially during long dives and repetitive dives made without adequate re-warming between dives. In warm water hypothermia, long slow cooling can take place in water temperatures as warm as 25 to 27 degree Celsuis. Although warm water hypothermia is not easily recognized as its cold water counterpart, it definitely warrants attention.

Drysuit Diving is not reserved only for Ice Diving or less than 10 degree Celsuis. With breathable materials used on Drysuit, many Asian divers now have started diving with drysuits.

This course has received alot of popularity these days because of the increased number of divers heading to Silfra Diving Expedition and Antartica.

Orpheus Dive is the only PADI Dive Centre in Singapore that offers Drysuit Training right here.

WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE US

BY THE WAY, WE DO NOT PAY FOR REVIEWS AND NEITHER DO WE FORCE REVIEWS ON DIVERS

 

Prompt response: From initial enquiry to travel arrangement to PADI course details, Orpheus Dive has never failed to reply timely, even exceeding expectations!

Hassle-free & flexible to needs: Additional pool sessions requested for were arranged according to our schedules, all we had to do was to make payment. All other logistics arrangements were settled by Orpheus Dive, including the actual trip for PADI training and certification.

Patient & professional dive instructors: Had Lester, Hamish & Darwin train our group and they were very extremely professional in teaching the required skills. Special shout-out to Darwin who has been most patient, most encouraging, most kind to help learners overcome fears and anxiety. He even went the extra mile to take underwater photos and videos to serve as a motivational tool and of course, those were most helpful in the post-dive review sessions. Outstanding service through and through!

Chi Ing

You teach with passion, you are very focus and analytic. You corrected my problems during the lesson. You took time to explain every single drills, you added new stuff to make the training fun. You go through again to make sure I understand. I think you are not just a instructor , but an amazing Teacher.

I want to say thank you to especially Michael & Darwin for tonight lesson.

Alan Fong

From zero to a certified advanced open water diver over one weekend, it would not be possible with the guidance from Michael and Nicholas, really, thank you very much for your help for this trip!

Lynn Pang

My sister and I have just recently completed our open water course with Orpheus. The class that we were in had a small ratio of 1 instructor to 3 students and our instructor, Nicholas Chow, was awesome! He was very patient throughout and ensured that each of us was able to carry out a specified task before moving onto next. I was also experiencing seasickness on the first day of the dive and Nicholas was quick to pass me ointments/seasick pills plus shared with me some very helpful tips on overcoming seasickness/equalization problems. Overall, I had a very enjoyable experience and felt safe throughout the course ( I would highly recommend Orpheus to everyone – thanks Orpheus!
