Wreck Diver

Discover Our Sunken Past

PADI Wreck Diver

Wrecks open fascinating windows to the past whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of mishap.  Most divers find wrecked ships, airplanes and even automobiles nearly irresistible because they’re exciting avenues of discovery that are intriguing to explore, and are usually teeming with aquatic life. The PADI Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.
