Many sunken ships have not been found yet and are subjects for dive safaris to find new and exciting grounds to explore something new.

Researching the history, layout, general condition, points of interest and potential hazards of a wreck are all covered in the PADI Wreck Diving Specialty Course.

Onderdeel 1: Theorie

We will start off your training with the mandatory paperwork and an introduction of the schedule and ourselves.

You will then watch a video to introduce you into the elements, legal advice, considerations, techniques, purpose and reason to dive on wrecks.

The theoretical part of the course includes 2 x Knowledge Reviews, which you can fill with the information of the video and some self-study with your own Wreck Diver Manual.

Once you have completed your Knowledge Reviews, your Instructor will review these with you and give additional information needed before you progress to the next step.

Part 2: Land Practice

There are a few things to consider when you dive on a wreck compared to a coral reef or any other dive site. You need to be aware of potential hazards and the general condition of a wreck as much as its layout for you to get an idea how to plan your dive

In preparation for your Open Water Dives, your Instructor will introduce you to the wreck you are going to visit. You will talk about techniques used to identify potential hazards and judge the general condition to be able to decide whether certain areas are safe or not.

A big part of the land based practice will be to get yourself accustomed to extra safety equipment which you will be carrying to safely enter wrecks during your dives. You will carry a flashlight together with your safety line and practice tying knots and using the lines for communication with your buddy.

Part 3: 4 Wreck Dives

Your 4 x Wreck Specialty Dives are gradually building up on themselves. We generally conduct these 4 dives over two days.

The first and second dive are to get you accustomed to the wreck, to get a feeling about its layout, measurements, potential points of entry and other areas. During these dives you will assess the condition, make notes and draw a map of the wreck as well. You will use this as the main base for the final dives of your PADI Wreck Diving Specialty course and discuss your findings with your Instructor (maybe over a beer in the bar :)…)

On the third dive of your PADI Wreck Diving Specialty Course you will practice techniques to safely enter the wreck on the outside of it. This way you can make sure that what you practiced on land before, will work underwater as well. You will be playing the role of leader and follower and be challenged to lay a line, tie knots where necessary, handle your flashlight or just follow “blindly” where necessary.

The fourth and final dive will be your choice now. You have the option of entering the wreck after planning it together with your Instructor or spend more time on the outside to explore. You will make the plan for and then dive it as your final task to become a PADI Wreck Specialty Diver!
