Whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past. Most divers find wrecked ships, aeroplanes and even cars nearly irresistible because they're intriguing to explore and exciting avenues of discovery, and usually full of aquatic life. The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible, and safe wreck diving.
The Fun Part
The fun part of the PADI Wreck Diver Specialty is visiting the wrecks, unlocking mysteries, and starting to gain the knowledge and experience that allows you to see things that others overlook. Sometimes, only the trained and experienced eye recognizes that a small hole or open door likely caused the vessel's demise.
