Wreck Diver Specialty Course
The scuba diving on Koh Tao has a couple of shipwrecks perfect for the Wreck Specialty Course. They are a great haven for marine life as well as being very interesting and inspiring for wreck divers to explore. Asia has a great many wrecks in shallow, clear waters so doing the Wreck Specialty Diving course is a great idea. Wrecks have a great many hazards to be aware of and you should not treat them as simple fun dives. The course covers these topics and opens up so many more dive sites to explore safely.
