WRECK DIVER The Padi Wreck Diver Course

The Wreck Diver Course with TEXAS DIVE CENTER

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


The Fun Part

The fun part of the Wreck Diver course is visiting wrecks, unlocking mysteries and starting to gain the knowledge and experience that allows you to see things that others overlook. Sometimes, only the trained, experienced eye recognizes that a small hole or open door likely caused the vessel’s demise.


What You Learn

  • Techniques for diving exploring shipwrecks, and how to avoid common hazards
  • How to research and learn the background of your favorite wrecks
  • Wreck scuba diving equipment considerations
  • Considerations and techniques for entering intact wrecks
  • Experience in planning, organizing and making at least four wreck dives under the supervision of your Instructor.

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact TEXAS DIVE CENTER.


Your Next Adventure

Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. That’s why the Wreck Diver course is a natural companion to the Deep Diver course. Sometimes you can take these two specialties concurrently. Other training to consider is the Enriched Air Diver course on your way to Master Scuba Diver.
