Wreck Diving Courses

Wreck Diving Course Subic Bay

 Wreck diving is an enjoyable and challenging specialism for scuba divers.

Penetrating inside shipwrecks is one of the most hazardous activities that a diver can undertake; but proper training, attitude and equipment will mitigate those risks.

All wreck diving courses are completed on the amazing wrecks of Subic Bay. Shallow site locations on major war wrecks allow for unparalleled in-water / wreck penetration training time for the superior results.

Over two and half decades experience in expeditionary wreck diving, cutting-edge penetration training and underwater archaeology projects; this ensures a second-to-none level of instructor experience.  Unlike many advanced wreck instructors, technical wreck penetration is my regular routine diving.

Wreck diving training is progressive, going from introductory/basic to advanced/technical (and beyond!).  Here is a list of the wreck diving courses that I offer.

What Training Is Available?

I offer a full range of technical training that runs from basic wreck to technical wreck penetration via RAID and TecRec.
