Course Outline

Ever fancied a wreck dive but was unsure of the techniques for diving them? Been to wrecks but never been inside? Now is your opportunity to do everything you ever dreamed of on a wreck. From basic wreck navigation techniques to hazard avoidance your ultimate goal is to safely go inside and visit areas never seen before.

All wreck dives are carried out at the King Cruiser wreck. Although there are other wrecks around Phuket, they are very small so we do not consider them challenging enough to prepare you for future wreck penetrations.

The course length depends on whether you recently completed the PADI Wreck adventure dive (within the last 12 months). If you recently completed the wreck adventure dive then the course can be completed in three days otherwise four days will be needed.For safety and scheduling reasons there is a maximum of one dive each day on the King Cruiser wreck plus two non-course dives at Shark Point and Koh Doc Mai. For the non-course dives, your instructor will act as your own private guide and you can also use those dives to continue practicing important teachniques such as perfecting buoyancy and using a line/reel.

It is also recommended that enriched air is used during the course. Enriched air tanks can be rented for an additional 200 baht per tank. If you are not enriched air certified then this is the perfect opportunity to learn and combine the two specialties. Contact us for a combined course price.

Steps Action
One Before the course, read the PADI Wreck Specialty manual and complete some questionnaires.
Two Discuss the questionnaires with your dive instructor and practice any skills above water that you may need for the dives.
Three Complete three or four days of diving using the new skills you have learnt. End the course by penetrating the hull area of the King Cruiser wreck in Phuket.
