Have you ever sat on the boat after a dive and felt like you must have been swimming round a different site to everyone else? Do you struggle to work out the bow from the stern, never mind all of the features in between?
If so then this is the course for you. Becoming a Wreck Detective will open your eyes to the common features found on both metal and wooden shipwrecks, key identifiers to look out for and what to do next if you would like to find out more about a particular wreck site.
If you’re at least 15 years old and have earned a PADI Adventure Diver certification or higher, you can enrol in the Wreck Diver Specialty course.
Becoming a Wreck Detective does not involve complicated measurements or learning survey techniques. You will be asked to produce a simple sketch of your site and to try to spot if any of the key features you would have read about in your student manual are present. The Wreck Detective Course involves two open water dives.
Even if you are an experienced diver, you will be amazed by how much you can spot and identify on a wreck site when you are being a Wreck Detective, whether it is a first visit or a site you have visited many times before.
This is a full PADI Speciality, and counts towards your Master Scuba Diver qualification. Ask us about combining your course with the PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course for an immersive wreck experience!
