The PADI Wreck Diver Course
Whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of a mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past. Most divers find wrecked ships, aeroplanes and even automobiles nearly irresistible because they’re intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery and usually teeming with aquatic life. The PADI Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.
The Fun Part
The fun part of the PADI Wreck Diver course is visiting wrecks, unlocking mysteries and starting to gain the knowledge and experience that allows you to see things that others overlook.
