As a Wreck Diver you gain access to dive wreck sites safely that could otherwise carry inherit risks.
Diving on underwater wrecks appeals to most divers, though for many different reasons. You may find yourself attracted to the challenge of exploring the wreck, or a fascination with its historical nature. Underwater photographers love wrecks for their picture potential, while those interested in nature like the fact that wrecks quickly become artificial reefs.
Wrecks are typically ships, but can include railroad cars, aircraft and automobiles. In these, you’ll find wreck sites range from those open to new divers to those only accessible by technical divers. Whether your first or your hundredth dive on a wreck, few moments in diving compare with descending on the past.
