Friday 5th, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July 2019.
Diving on a piece of history is a lure to many divers. Wrecks provide a challenge, a mystery, and are usually teeming with aquatic life.
Whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past. Most divers find wrecked ships, aeroplanes nearly irresistible because they’re intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery, and usually teeming with aquatic life. The PADI Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.
We are running a weekend at N.D.A.C in July to get the full benefit of the Wreck course. We have access to several different ‘wrecks’ at varying depths.
The water temperature at 30 metres is approximately 8-10 degrees, we advise that you should be drysuit trained, and comfortable in the drysuit, to make these dives, however if you choose to use a wetsuit, please be advised this will be cold.
We will also be running the PADI Deep Diver course over the weekend alongside the Wreck course.
If you wish to take both the Deep and Wreck course you will need to be with us for three days, meaning we will start the dives on Friday, but only if you are doing both courses.
If you want to take only one of the courses you will need to be available for the Saturday and Sunday, we start early so best to get up there the night before.
N.D.A.C – The National Diving and Activity Centre – at Chepstow is the perfect place to take these specialty courses. There are lots of wrecks to learn on, with lots of interesting places to explore on your deep dives. Both the Deep and Wreck specialty courses require four dives each, which need to be spread out over two days, so we stay up for the weekend, to make the most of your time up there.
Transport, accommodation and food is not included in the course fee.
Four divers needed for the course to run.
