Your Next Adventure

Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water usually due to the fact that, logically, they travel in deeper water at the time they sunk. That’s why the PADI Wreck Diver course is a natural companion to the PADI Deep Diver course. Sometimes you can take these two specialties concurrently. It is important to understand that any attempt to penetrate a wreck without this specialist training is extremely dangerous and can cause unnecessary injury  and can, in extreme cases, can be fatal.  

Other training to consider is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver.
