Become a certified wreck diver


Many of the ocean’s best dive sites are wrecks. These impressive structures attract unusually high densities of marine life and give you the chance to immerse in living history as you dive.

There is nothing quite like wreck diving and the SSI Wreck Diving specialty will give you all the skills and knowledge you need to become a safe and confident wreck diver. With a combination of academic and confined water sessions, you will be taught how to safely conduct non-penetration dives around wrecks and artificial reefs, up to a depth of 30 meters.

You will also get to practice your wreck diving skills during open water training dives. All of which will ensure you can enjoy wreck diving with confidence and get the most out of every dive. Upon completion of this program, you will earn your SSI Wreck Diving specialty certification. Continue your adventures and become a wreck diver.

 *Flying After Diving Guidelines

 

  • For a single no-decompression dive, a minimum preflight surface interval of 12 hours is suggested. (Including pool and shallow water immersions)

  • For multiple dives per day or multiple days of diving, a minimum preflight surface interval of 18 hours is suggested. Dive Newcastle recommends 24 hours to err on the side of safety. 

  • For dives requiring decompression stops, 24 hours minimum is recommended. 

    To err on the side of safety, many divers plan a 24-hour surface interval or longer and spend their time exploring topside attractions.

  • All divers and students need to follow the recommendation given by the manufacturer of the dive computer regarding No Fly Times and should always take the most conservative approach in regard's to flying after diving. Waiting longer before flying when possible after diving and exploring the top side during this period is always your best approach. This information is discussed further and in more detail during your dive course.
