WRECK ’N’ ROLL
WRECK DIVING IS an incredibly enriching and humbling experience for any diver, but before you can begin your wreck adventure, having the proper skills and knowledge is essential for a safe and responsible wreck dive. These courses will equip you in areas such as diving technique, communication, planning, use of special equipment, and navigation.
Some schools offer an all-in-one course that trains the diver in both nonpenetration and limited-penetration wreck diving, while other schools have separate courses for each. Deciding on which school to enroll at and which course to take should depend on what you are comfortable with and what you wish to achieve as a wreck diver. SSI WRECK DIVING
