PADI Wreck Diver Course

Underwater wrecks of ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life and surprises.

Completing the PADI Wreck Diver course unlocks access to an underwater world beyond our imagination, and that includes some of the most incredible wrecks.

The majority of wreck sites are the result of shipwrecks, but there are an increasing amount of artificial reef sites laid out specifically for divers. Whether placed there intentionally or the result of an unfortunate event, as a PADI Wreck Diver you’re given a unique opportunity to venture down and explore.

The PADI Wreck Diver course demonstrates the advantages to visiting these fascinating windows into the past, as well as how to do so responsibly.

If you’re at least 15 years old and have earned a PADI Adventure Diver certification or higher, you can enroll in the PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course.
