Whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past. Most divers find wrecked ships, airplanes and even automobiles nearly irresistible because they’re intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery, and usually teeming with aquatic life. The PADI Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.
The Carolinas are word renowned for wreck diving - the coast here is often referred to as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. You will find examples of wrecks sunk as artificial reefs, those lost due to storms and those sunk during a wartime attack. There is even a German U-Boat which is a popular site to visit for our classes. This makes the Wreck Diver specialty a great choice for local divers.
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.
