PADI WRECK DIVER SPECIALTY
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 usually teeming with aquatic life. Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or spying something others have missed.
The popular PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course offers rewarding adventures while observing responsible wreck diving practices.
