New Jersey Diving is all about Wreck Diving. 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, airplanes and even automobiles nearly irresistible because they’re intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery, and usually teeming with aquatic life.
In this PADI Specialty course, you will learn techniques for diving wrecks safely and confidently. This special version of the course includes 1 day of diving at Dutch Springs practicing wreck diving techniques and then 2 boat dives on the Gypsy Blood out of Point Pleasant, New Jersey accompanied by your wreck diving instructor. The Gypsy Blood will be headed to the wreck of the Vizcaya on the 9th. You’ll be on the boat with your instructor, your classmates, and with other divers from Underwater Adventures Dive Center. Academic work is covered between dives at Dutch.
