The SDI Wreck Diver Specialty Course if the perfect way to begin your wreck diving adventures! At Diving Sports Canada we offer a 2 day comprehensive course on wreck safety and diving techniques with 2 levels of training; no-penetration and limited penetration certifications.

Who Should Take the Course

Any diver interested in expanding their dive knowledge and skills and want to learn how to safely explore underwater shipwrecks.

Wreck diving can be one of the most exciting aspects of sport diving, however every effort must be made to maximize safe diving techniques. The SDI Wreck Diver Course will discuss the equipment and techniques commonly employed while wreck diving. This course may be taught as a non-penetration, 2 dives required, or as a limited-penetration course, requiring 4 dives. Limited-penetration is defined as a swim through or within the ambient light of entry point.

Course Description:

  • You will receive an eLearning code for the knowledge development portion of the course to be reviewed before your ocean dives.
  • We will spend a full weekend diving (Saturday and Sunday) to complete your training
  • Day 1 we will be shore diving at a local site to review eLearning material, practice land drills, and underwater skills. Day 1 is also an assessment day for your instructor to give you guidance on what skills you will need to need to improve in order to achieve certification.
  • On Day 2 we will be boat diving on one of our local wrecks called the Annapolis. We will be mapping the wreck, practicing drills on the exterior, and depending on student ability we will be planning limited penetration using lines.
  • Due to the inherent risk of wreck diving, some students may be asked to return to complete the full Limited Penetration certification.
  • We are doing our part to try and reduce plastic use, so all of our certifications will be digital. If students would prefer a physical certification card, then they may pay to have one at the time of certification.

  • Course Prerequisites:

  • Advanced Open Water Diver/Advanced Adventure Diver required
  • Divers must have a deep diver specialty certification or be able to provide proof of experience in order to dive deeper than 18 metres/60 feet in this course (10+ logged dives deeper than 18m/60ft)
  • Recent cold water or drysuit experience required (in-pool assessment by instructor may be required)

  • What You Will Learn

    Over the course of our 2 day course we will complete 4 dives to teach you many different techniques execute wreck dives safely. We will cover communication in a variety of conditions, how to assess and map a wreck, limited visibility scenarios, emergency scenarios outside and inside a wreck, basic line work for penetration, and much more.
