"Diving on wrecks means diving in the past - and it is always related with a certain thrill..." It is an unbelievable experience to see a big ship from a bird's perspective and to glide towards the captain's bridge.

During the WRECK DIVING SPECIALTY COURSE you will learn where and how to get background information on wrecks, how to locate wrecks and how to prepare for a wreck dive. During the 2 mandatory dives you will apply the correct wreck diving techniques, as well as, evaluate and avoid the potential risks while diving on wrecks.

Diving on wrecks is exciting and with the right training WRECK DIVING will become a great adventure!

If you want to learn more about WRECK DIVING, you can buy the manual or the DVD even if you don't want to sign up for the course.
