All the details:
Ships, aeroplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life. Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or finding something others have missed. 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 over two days 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 We typically offer this course on one of our weekend trips to Stoney Cove in Leicestershire. The Stanegarth, an 18 metre long tug that spent its life on inland waterways in the UK, is the perfect wreck on which to complete your Wreck Diver training with several entry and exit points. The PADI Wreck Diver course is available to divers aged 15 and over with a PADI Adventure Diver qualification (or equivalent). In addition to your standard scuba equipment you will require a dive torch, underwater slate, compass and underwater line and reel. We also recommend that you carry a cutting tool. Standard kit hire is not included in the course price. If you are a Dive Academy member you will receive free standard kit hire for recreational courses taken with us.
