THE FUN PART

The fun part of the PADI 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. Wrecks can be ominous, but when you descend into the depths and a haunting shell of an old schooner, or massive freighter starts to appear in the shadows, it is truly incredible. Sometimes, only the trained, experienced eye recognizes that a small hole or open door likely caused the vessel’s demise. Whether you wish to dive the numerous wrecks that have been well preserved here in the Great Lakes or travel abroad to search for sunken treasures, there will be something interesting to see where the past meets the present at the bottom of the sea floor.

YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE

Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. 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. Other training to consider is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, as all these specialities are credited toward your PADI Master Scuba Diver.
