Diving to shipwrecks can be one of the most exciting aspects of the sport of diving and can reveal bits of history, seen by only a few so far. Any effort on such a dive, however, should be directed towards performing safe diving techniques. In the SDI Wreck Diver course we will discuss and use the special equipment and techniques, which are applied in diving to sunken ships. The course can be of two types - without penetrating the sunken ship (two dives) and with partial penetration (total 3 diving). In case per course, in which it is partially penetrated, limited penetration means swimming, in the space illuminated by the light, surrounding the point of entry into the sunken ship. Your SDI instructor will teach you how to plan and execute safe and fun wreck dives.
