Want to explore sunken ships, crashed planes and lost treasures beneath the surface? Then the PADI Wreck Diver program is just want you want. To venture into PADI's Wreck Diver program, you'll need to be at least a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent and be at least 15.
During your PADI Wreck Diver program you'll go on four open water dives, which may be conducted over at least two days. This is where you'll put in to practice the information you gained from listening to your instructor and from the PADI Wreck Diving Manual and video.
Information contained in your program includes:
- The planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of wreck diving.
- The preparation and use of lights, air supplies, special equipment, penetration lines and reels.
- Limited-visibility diving techniques and emergency procedures.
The elective wreck dive conducted during the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver program may count toward this specialty at the discretion of the instructor.
*Wreck penetration-training dives are limited to within the light zone and within 40 metres/130 feet from the surface, vertical and horizontal distance included. If the wreck used for training is located in deep water (over 18 metres/60 feet), the Deep Diver rating is recommended as a prerequisite for the Wreck Diver program.
