Yet another special weekend from Orca Scuba on 8th -9th 0f July
Wreck it Lads!
PADI Wreck Specialty weekend! Men only (not really)
Whether purpose-sunk as an artificial reef for scuba divers, or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past. Ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life. Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or spying something others have missed. The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course is popular because it offers rewarding adventures while observing responsible wreck diving practices.
If you’re at least 15 years old and have earned a PADI Adventure Diver certification or higher, you can enroll in the Wreck Diver Specialty course.
On Rawa we have our very own ship wreck purposely sank for the enjoyment of our divers. The wreck specialty will give you two dives exploring this little gem and two dives in the majestic underwater realm between the columns of our jetty where the fallen wooden beams that supported the structure in the past now lie scattered at various angles creating the perfect simulation wreck environment.
You will learn that there are many different types of wrecks, some of which are protected by laws that guard their historical and cultural significance. Your training starts by reviewing guidelines for researching and respecting wrecks. During the four dives you’ll learn:
Safety considerations for navigating and exploring wrecks.
Surveying and mapping a wreck.
Using penetration lines and reels to guide exploration.
Techniques to avoid kicking up silt or disturbing the wreck and its inhabitants.
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
