Ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life. Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or spying something others have missed. The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course is popular because it offers rewarding adventures while observing responsible wreck diving practices.

If you’re at least 15 years old and have earned a PADI Adventure Diver certification or higher, you can enroll in the Wreck Diver Specialty course.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1456219515168{margin-bottom: 27px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4410″ img_size=”large” style=”vc_box_border” border_color=”black”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”What will you learn?” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left|color:%23222222″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1513986486971{margin-bottom: 23px !important;}”][vc_column_text]There are many different types of wrecks, some of which are protected by laws that guard their historical and cultural significance. Your training starts by reviewing guidelines for researching and respecting wrecks. During four dives you’ll learn:

  • Safety considerations for navigating and exploring wrecks.
  • Surveying and mapping a wreck.
  • Using penetration lines and reels to guide exploration.
  • Techniques to avoid kicking up silt or disturbing the wreck and its inhabitants.

You may be able to get college credit for the Wreck Diver course – ask your instructor.

Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”How can you start learning now?” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23222222″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1513986406192{margin-bottom: 31px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1533437144807{margin-bottom: 25px !important;}”]

Get a PADI Wreck Diver Manual and Wreck Diving video at A-1 Scuba Diving And Snorkeling Adventures when you enroll in the course. Read the manual and watch the video before meeting with your PADI Instructor to discuss the wrecks you’ll visit during your open water scuba dives.

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”What scuba gear will you use?” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23222222″ use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1513986925425{margin-bottom: 23px !important;}”][vc_column_text css_animation=”none” css=”.vc_custom_1533437165337{margin-bottom: 25px !important;}”]

You’ll use your basic scuba equipment and will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation. During exercises, you’ll work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and perhaps CPR mannequins. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit, which will be useful throughout your diving career.

Visit A-1 Scuba Diving And Snorkeling Adventures to get advice about everything you need for your diving adventures.

Breathing underwater for the first time is something you’ll never forget, so don’t wait.
