What will you learn?

There are many different types of wrecks, some of which are protected by laws that guard their historical and cultural significance. Your training starts by reviewing guidelines for researching and respecting wrecks. During four dives you’ll 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
  • 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

You may be able to get college credit for the Wreck Diver course while you are on vacation in Utila!

Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.

How can you start learning now?

Get a PADI Wreck Diver Manual and Wreck Diving video at Underwater Vision when you enroll in the course. Read the manual and watch the video before meeting with your PADI Instructor to discuss the wrecks you’ll visit during your open water scuba dives.

Next Step

Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water so taking the PADI Deep Diver course will allow you explore more of the wrecks you desire.

Other training to consider is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver.

Don’t follow the leader…BE the leader! Learn to orientate and navigate yourself around the divesites of Utila so that you will ALWAYS return to the boat (or entry point), and be the diver everyone else wants to follow!  Many of the dive sites in Utila are ‘wall dives’ which means that divers generally use a timing device and follow the wall in one direction, then turn around and return to the boat when the dive is about half way through. This takes some practice to become proficient, but it is a fairly easy skill to master. However, once you have dived the walls you will want to explore more!
