One of the most exciting
types of dive site to explore
Who among us doesn't want to explore sunken ships, crashed planes and lost treasures beneath the surface? The PADI Wreck Diver program will prepare you to dive wrecks safely and get the most out of your wreck dives. To take the Wreck Diver Specialty program, you’ll need to be at least a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent) and be at least 15.
During your PADI Wreck Diver program you'll go on four open water dives, which may be conducted over at least two days. This is where you'll have an opportunity to practice and perfect the wreck diving skills you gained from the PADI Wreck Diving Manual and video.
Information contained in your program includes:
The planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of wreck diving.
The preparation and use of lights, air supplies, special equipment, penetration lines and reels.
Limited-visibility diving techniques and emergency procedures.
The elective wreck dive conducted during the PADI Advanced Open Water or Advanced Plus program can count as the first dive of this specialty at the discretion of the instructor.
*Wreck penetration-training dives are limited to within the light zone and within 40 metres/130 feet from the surface, vertical and horizontal distance included. If the wreck used for training is located in deep water (over 18 metres/60 feet), the Deep Diver rating is recommended as a prerequisite for the Wreck Diver program.
