PADI Wreck Detective speciality

Wrecks are historic time capsules that are just waiting to be explored and their story unravelled. The PADI Wreck Detective speciality, written by the Nautical Archaeology Society, will help you to enjoy wreck dives even more.

The remains of a wreck acts as a link to the past, it may commemorate a battle and the lives which were lost on board, or new objects may be discovered that can tell us more about past societies.

Becoming a Wreck Detective will open your eyes to the common features found on shipwrecks, key identifiers to look out for and what to do next if you would like to find out more about a particular wreck site. Looking at objects found on wreck sites can tell us more about how the people on board lived, worked, traded and moved around the world

Discovery is just the beginning, by the end of this course you will have the skills to identify what kind of shipwreck you are investigating and will be able to recognise some of its key features.

With your PADI Instructor you will:

  • Expand your knowledge of wreck sites
  • Understand wreck dive site limitations and laws
  • Develop skills to recognise key features of common wreck sites
  • Learn wreck identification and information gathering skills
  • Plan and organise your wreck dives¬†
