Wreck Diver

One of the biggest lures to the underwater world is the opportunity to delve into history and see the many sunken wrecks that lie there.  Whether sunk on purpose, as an artificial reef or the result of a mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past.  Most divers find wrecked ships, planes or even vehicles nearly irresistible because they are intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery and usually teeming with aquatic life.  The PADI Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.

The great thing about the PADI wreck diver course is that you will get to visit wrecks and begin gaining the knowledge and experience that allows you to see things that others may overlook.  Sometimes, only the trained, experienced eye recognises that a small hole or open door was the likely cause of the wreck’s demise

What does the course consist of?

During your course you will learn the theory of:

  • Techniques for diving and exploring wrecks
  • How to avoid common hazards
  • How to research and gain knowledge about your favourite wrecks
  • Equipment considerations for wreck diving
  • Techniques and considerations for entering intact wrecks
  • How to plan, organise wreck dives

You will undertake four wreck dives putting into practice all the theory that you have learnt.

Things to do after you qualify: Go on dive trips
At Wraysbury Dive Centre we organise dive trips both at home in the UK and abroad.   Trips are organised for all levels of diver.  Just keep an eye on our trips page here and on our facebook page for upcoming events.
Things to do after you qualify: Buy dive kit
You may have already bought your first dive toys but if you have not, you may be considering making that first purchase.  We would always recommend that you purchase your dive equipment from a dive shop rather than shopping online (and its not just because we have a dive shop on site).  Buying in person allows you to try things on so that you get the right fit, get the right advice and kit for the type of diving that you intend to do and benefit from the experience of those that actually go diving.  You may also end up with a better deal than you imagined.
