Florida, aka the Sunshine State, usually conjures visions of palm trees and white sand beaches. It’s not a place often associated with drysuit diving. But that didn’t deter some 100 divers from gathering at Manatee Springs, a popular Chiefland, Florida, spring basin in full drysuit regalia. The event was a DUI DOG Rally & Demo Tour — part demo day, part reunion. The events, held at more than a dozen locations around the country (dui-online.com), provide divers with an opportunity to try before buying — or to simply sample the drysuit experience.
