Shipwrecks were always exciting and fascinating destinations among divers. Almost every diving destination in the world has ships, planes, submarine and more that can be explored underwater and to see the change that the sea has brought on this objects is always overwhelming.
Every dive in shipwrecks has its own uniqueness, it goes from the story behind it to its treasures, art, weapons and the sea creatures that have found their new home, and those are just a few of the reasons why we like to dive in shipwrecks.
But despite all this, incursion into a shipwreck puts us in sensitive areas requiring concentration and safety!
A shipwrecks specialty will give you the knowledge of how to plan and approach a dive to a sunken ship and to a place where you can't ascent directly to the surface. During a shipwrecks specialty, we will learn how to map and mark a sunken ship and how to reach the bottom of the ship. A shipwreck diving can be one of the most exciting aspects of diving, but it has to be done in the safest way. in the shipwrecks specialty course, we will discuss and use the equipment and techniques relevant to diving in shipwrecks. During the course, we will perform a partial penetration within the range of light of the entrance point area.
