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:
- Safety considerations for navigating and exploring wrecks.
- Surveying and mapping a wreck.
- Using penetration lines and reels to guide exploration.
- Techniques to avoid kicking up silt or disturbing the wreck and its inhabitants.
PADI Wreck Diver Certification require 4 dives. These dives can be completed on two of our Carolina Coast Dive Charters. For Wreck Diver Captain Jim recommends the Charleston Tug, Hyde, and BP25. These charters provide the environments you need to practice and master all of your Wreck Diver skills. They are also shallow enough (less than 100 Feet) so you get plenty of bottom time to practice your Wreck Skills. From May through November we dive these wrecks at least once per month, so you have plenty of choices to pick from.
