Dive and Navigate Underwater Wrecks
Wreck diving offers something for underwater explorers of nearly every experience level. In this course, you will learn how to:
Protect: Wrecks can, at times, be surprisingly fragile. Learn how to protect wrecks from damage by divers while at the same time learning how to reduce the risks to diver safety wrecks can pose.
Preserve: Discover how to most responsibly share your discoveries with divers and nondivers alike, whether it is through research, the preservation of artifacts or simply letting things be so they can be enjoyed by others.
Promote Understanding: Wreck diving is more enjoyable when you can uncover the origin and history of the wrecks you dive. Doing so also enhances your ability to share your discoveries with others.
