SSI Wreck Diving
Wreck diving is high on the list for most divers; wrecks attract marine life, provide photographic opportunities and open an insight into history. To get the most from diving on Wrecks, you combine underwater skills such as buoyancy control with supporting knowledge and risk management.
The SSI Wreck Diving course provides you with in-depth information on the necessary skills, equipment, knowledge and experience required to safely conduct non-penetration wreck dives. For those interested in wreck penetration, this course is a pre-cursor to the SSI Extended Range Advanced Wreck Diving course.
The SSI DIGITAL LEARNING, REAL DIVING education system will guide you through the academic knowledge at your own pace; we will review this knowledge with you and add further content in areas such as the relevant UK Protection of Wrecks Act 1973, the significant growth in maritime archaeology over recent years and the opportunities for involvement together with highlighting some of the world-class UK Wreck Diving.
During the Confined Water (Pool) session, we will typically review and refresh your buoyancy skills and Surface Marker Buoy deployment.
The course completes with 2 Open Water dives on wrecks - whenever possible, we take advantage of our boat 'Mulberry Diver' and use a local wreck such as the Far Mulberry or Brigitta / T'pot; if the weather is inclement we usually go to Vobster Quay.
