PADI Wreck Diver Speciality

You drift down and pass through a window into the past and as you near the bottom, a recognisable shape begins to form! First, you see a straight line, then a round window. Next, a ship materialises in front of you. As you look at the wreck, the past and present meet!

Whether sunk intentionally or tragically, a sunken ship, a plane or an automobile, the call of wrecks is nearly irresistible to divers. Through the PADI Wreck Diver Speciality course, you gain the skills, knowledge and procedures you need to answer the call of wreck diving.

We have courses running throughout the year around the Isle of Wight and at Vobster Quay in Somerset. Why not join us for a weekend, complete your course and experience the thrill of learning to dive wrecks and safely penetrate them! Email us at with  your preferred dates and we can make it happen!
