CA$ 249.99

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, 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 Learn

  • Techniques for diving exploring shipwrecks, and how to avoid common hazards
  • How to research and learn the background of your favourite wrecks
  • Wreck scuba diving equipment considerations
  • Considerations and techniques for entering intact wrecks
  • Experience in planning, organizing and making at least four wreck dives under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.


To take this course, you must be:

  • Minimum 15 years of age
  • PADI Advanced Diver (or equivalent)

The Gear You Use

  • Students will need a full set of rental gear and should own their own reel and 2 dive lights. Rental gear is available at 50% off for all students if needed. 

Learning Materials You Need

Students have to read and complete the knowledge reviews in the Wreck Diver Manual before the start of the course. 

Your Next Adventure

Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. That’s why the PADI Wreck Diver course is a natural companion to the PADI Deep Diver course. Sometimes you can take these two specialties concurrently. Other training to consider is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver.
