The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty can open up a whole new dimension to your diving. Wreck diving can be exhilerating and extremely exciting. UK wrecks have an abundance of life on them, and around Plymouth with our rich maritime history, we have more of them than pretty much any where else in the world. We teach this course so that you can learn the skills to safely dive UK wrecks and even penetrate into them if you want. You will learn how to plan and organise a wreck dive, correct techniques, anti silt finning, and how to lay line so that you can safely penetrate. However if you prefer to stay on the outside of a wreck then we can still cater for you as going inside optional.
We mostly use 2 of the larger wrecks in the area. HMS Scylla and the James Egan Layne, both are renouned as two of the country's top dives. Have a look at the requirements below and official details from PADI.

Your Adventures In Diving Wreck Adventure Dive may count towards this Specialty certification at instructor discretion. This Specialty certification also counts as one of five Specialty certifications required for your Master Scuba Diver certification. To explore some of our wrecks such as HMS Scylla ,where we normally do our penetration dive*, contact Aquanauts to sign up for your Wreck Diver Specialty course. * Wreck penetration-training dives are limited to within the light zone and within 40 metres/130 feet from the surface, vertical and horizontal distance included. If the wreck used for training is located in deep water (over 18 metres/60 feet), the Deep Diver rating is recommended as a prerequisite for the Wreck Diver program. Scylla penetrations can be deeper than 18m.
