The ocean houses centuries of history in the form of wrecks. UK waters are the home to some of the world’s most spectacular ship, plane, and submarine wrecks. As an added bonus, wrecks also house some of the most incredible marine life, meaning that a wreck dive has the double interest factor of the wreck structure and exploration as well as creatures and fish that live there.
During the PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course you will gain the knowledge and experience to safely dive a wreck. You will learn how to map a wreck, identify potential penetration points and assess the various hazards that may be present.
The Wreck Specialty consists of four dives which take place over 2 days.
At your Instructor’s discretion the wreck dive from your Advanced Open Water course can be counted as one of the four dives.
Before the dives you will need to read through the Wreck Diver Manual, watch the Wreck Diver DVD and complete the Knowledge Reviews.
Your Instructor will then review the information with you at the dive site prior to your dives.
The information covered will include mapping, penetration, navigating through a wreck.
