The wrecks in Discovery Passage are a window into the past.
Whether they were sank purposefully like the HMCS Columbia, or by accident like the May Island Ferry, each wreck is fascinating and impressive to explore. You will learn responsible wreck diving techniques and explore these artificial reefs that host incredible life below the surface.

DESCRIPTION


Once you sign up for the course, your instructor will be in touch!

Knowledge Development: all theory may be completed at home through PADI eLearning or in the shop with your instructor.

Ocean Dives: over 4 ocean dives off our boat "Ocean Guardian", you’ll learn:

- Safety considerations for navigating and exploring wrecks
- Surveying and mapping a wreck
- Using penetration lines and reels to guide exploration
- Techniques to avoid kicking up silt or disturbing the wreck and its inhabitants

The first day of ocean dives will be spent perfecting buoyancy and finning techniques, while practicing tie-off and penetration methods not in an overhead environment. The second day will be spent on a wreck in Discovery Passage where you will put your skills to the test while penetrating the wreck.
