PADI Wreck Diver Speciality
Whether it’s a purposely sunken ship to serve as an artificial reef for divers, or a sunken ship as a result of an accident, wrecks or sunken ships are fascinating windows into the past.
Boats, airplanes, and even cars are fascinating to explore and are typically full of aquatic life. Each dive on a wreck offers an opportunity to discover, possibly decipher a mystery or spy on something that others have lost.
