Wreck Diver Specialty

PADI Wreck Diver Photo

This class involves reading the PADI Wreck Diver Manual and answering knowledge review questions. Then making 4 dives over 2 days. Manzanillo doesn't have the greatest access to wrecks. Only one, the "San Luciano Wreck" off La Boquita beach. The boat is accessible for some penetration diving but it is in shallow water, 25', and the visibility can be poor. Still, it makes a good training dive!

Whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past. Most divers find wrecked ships, airplanes and even automobiles nearly irresistible because they're 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.

What you will learn:

  • Techniques for diving exploring shipwrecks, and how to avoid common hazards
  • How to research and learn the background of your favorite wrecks
  • Wreck scuba diving equipment considerations
