WRECK SPECIALTY COURSE

The PADI Wreck Specialty course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.

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, airplanes and even automobiles nearly irresistible because they’re intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery, and usually teeming with aquatic life.

You have arrived on a piece of history, a disaster from the past, or a new condo for the inhabitants of the ocean. Diving wrecks is an adventure in exploring humanity’s loss and nature’s gain.
