Traditionally dry suit diving would only by done in cold water when wetsuits are not practical or just not comfortable because of excessively cold temperatures. Technical diving and Cave diving in Thailand sometimes requires long decompression times as well as temperatures at depth much colder then the shallow reef temperatures most are accustomed to. Comforts as well as redundant buoyancy control are two of the major advantages of dry suit diving in any climate. For those that live in colder countries learning in a warm tropical environment is a very comfortable alternative.
