The purpose of the PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course in Cape Town is to familiarize divers with the skills, knowledge, planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems, hazards and excitement of diving on our Cape Town wrecks.

The Wreck Diver Specialty course is intended as a safe, supervised introduction to wreck diving, with emphasis on fun and safety.

The goals of PADI Wreck Diver training are:
  • Upon completing this program, the student should be able to demonstrate practical wreck diving knowledge, including recognizing and avoiding potential hazards, and planning procedures that make wreck diving fun.
  • Upon completing this program, the student should be able to explain the historical value of wrecks, social and legal issues surrounding that value, and describe some of wreck diving’s implications, including the pros and cons of removing artifacts from wrecks.
  • Upon completing this program, the student should be able to plan and organize dives to safely explore wrecks found within depths and conditions as good as or better than those he has been trained in.
  • Upon completing this program, the student should be able to identify the hazards of wreck penetration diving and demonstrate the techniques and procedures required to minimize those hazards.

Why PADI Wreck Diver?

The lure of exploring sunken vessels, airplanes and automobiles is something most divers can’t resist. The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course introduces you to wreck diving and helps you develop the skills and knowledge necessary for safe and fun wreck diving.
