Wreck Diver

R2,700.00


Who should take this course?

Whether purpose-sunk as an artificial reef for scuba divers or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past. Ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually team with aquatic life. Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery and 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.

Description

What will you learn?

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.
  • Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask Scuba Evolution about earning credit.

What scuba gear will you use?

You’ll need your basic scuba equipment, plus a dive light to see into the wreck, a slate and underwater compass for mapping and navigation and a line and reel for practicing wreck penetration. Scuba Evolution may suggest other gear appropriate for wreck diving in your area.

How can you start learning now?

Contact Scuba Evolution to enroll in the course and get your materials. Start to study using the PADI Wreck Diver manual. Your PADI Instructor will then meet with you to schedule knowledge review sessions along with your Wreck Dives.
