Dry suit diving is a tool.  It allows the diver to stay warmer, complete more dives in a day and endure longer dives when necessary.   Dry suit diving is not for everyone!  Cold water diving is not for everyone!  This tool gives the diver an ability to go where others cannot or will not.  It opens door to new worlds and allows the explorer to emerge.  People who dive dry see more and are more likely to keep diving than those without.

“When the northern days get shorter and the water gets colder – then the time for Dry Suit Diving has come.”

In North East Ohio and in the Great Lakes region some of the best visibility comes during the coldest months.  Algae dies and settles from the water column, ice forms and keeps the waves from string the water and amazing visibility beneath the surface is born.  Learn to wield this tool and see what others see and experience another side within the diving realm.

Buckeye Scuba has many different dry suits in its rental inventory and will provide a suit for you if necessary.  We are strong proponents that you should learn to dive in your own suit.  If you want to be a drysuit diver you need your own suit.  They MUST be properly fit to your body shape and buying one off the internet is a sure recipe for disaster.   Before you buy your suit you owe it to yourself to talk to the professionals at Buckeye Scuba.  We have been diving dry longer than anyone else in North East Ohio!
