Wreck Diving Specialty

Wreck Specialty Course Koh Tao

Shipwrecks are a great haven for marine life as well as being very interesting and inspiring for divers to explore.  Asia has a great many wrecks in shallow, clear waters to explore so doing the Koh Tao Wreck Diving Specialty opens up so many of these dive sites to explore safely.  Wrecks have a great many hazards to be aware and you should not treat them as simple dives, the Wreck Diving Specialty course covers these topics.  It is great to combine this course with the Deep Specialty taking you to 40m and then 90% around Asia are open to you.
