What will you be doing during the Advanced Wreck Specialty Diver Course?

Over the period of a theory session and 2 dives you will develop correct reeling techniques, such as how to deploy trail lines, how to correctly follow lines and maintain contact, correct finning and buoyancy techniques to avoid silt-outs, as well as additional hazards encountered when entering wrecks as well as the rules we use to minimize risk, and much more.

The SSI Advanced Wreck Specialty Course can be taken by anyone that holds an Open Water Diver License, and any level beyond. It is recommended that you have Enriched Air Nitrox and the Deep Specialty, which can be taken in combination to this if you like. The reason for this is that it allows you to get further into the wreck since your depth limit is monitored considering direct distance to the surface. For instance, the HTMS Sattakut, which is one of the great wrecks found around Koh Tao, has entry points at 20m. If you have the Deep Specialty then you can penetrate the Wreck for a distance of 20m, since this would then max you out at a 40m direct distance to the surface. The Nitrox then has the benefit of allowing us to spend longer on these dives and consequently explore more of the interior.  

During a theory based session, and two optional scuba dives, you’ll;

  • Discuss & Practice Correct Penetration Procedures
  • Discuss additional hazards
  • Cover the safe rules regarding Wreck penetration

If you would like to combine the specialties mentioned, please see the combination packages or simply send us an email.
