What is the Wreck Diver Specialty Course?

Wreck Diving Fun on Koh Tao!

The Wreck Diver Course we offer here on Koh Tao teaches you responsible techniques for diving and observing shipwrecks, as well as learning more about how to spot potential hazards, more about safe wreck penetration, and additional equipment considerations. 

It also gives you a solid foundation from which you can decide if you would like to take your training further and explore inside the wrecks by pursuing the Advanced Wreck Diver Course.

It is an extremely popular course, and one that all of our team enjoys teaching for numerous reasons.

Wrecks of all description provide an insight into some history. 

Imagine touring a museum, except underwater!!

All wrecks have some history attached to them, whether a decommissioned WW2 Shipwreck sunk intentionally as an artificial reef, or a newly discovered missing submarine. Literally immersing yourself in this unique locations makes for an incredible feeling. 

Another reason is that the return to nature of these structures is incredible in itself. It is surreal to see something created for various human purposes now being developed as a reef system that becomes home to an abundance of marine life great and small.

This in turn leads to the third reason wreck diving is so popular - the abundance of marine life found on them. With so many places for marine life to hide and reproduce, this creates amazing nurseries, which in turn brings in larger predators who are happy for the abundant feeding ground.

It can be taken by anyone aged 10 years or more who holds at least the Open Water License. However, it is more suited to those that have an Advanced License or, better still, a Deep Diver License.

This is mostly a result of the increased depths at which wreck diving c

an be done. For instance, if you dive at a wreck in 15 meters of water, and penetrate the wreck for 10 meters, essentially you will have reached a depth of 25 meters.
