Whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past.

The PADI Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.

The Fun Part

The fun part of the PADI Wreck Diver course is visiting wrecks, unlocking mysteries and starting to gain the knowledge and experience that allows you to see things that others overlook. Sometimes, only the trained, experienced eye recognizes that a small hole or open door likely caused the vessel’s demise.

St. Croix has 5 wrecks that are located with 100 yards of each other making diving on 2 to 3 wrecks on the same dive easy.

  • Use of all dive gear
  • Immediately processing your certification card

Your Next Adventure

Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. That’s why the PADI Wreck Diver course is a natural companion to the PADI Deep Diver course. Sometimes you can take these two specialties concurrently. Other training to consider is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver.
