Why take a course?

Diving on wrecks has always stimulated the imagination of many divers. Searching for secrets, treasures, ships lost in wars and storms or a  pursuit of history are just a few of the reasons why people decide to become wreck divers. Specific diving skills, use of specialized tools, new planning methods, as well as knowledge of procedures and logistics related to diving at sea are not only useful but also valuable and will allow you to develop. The IDF Wreck Diver course is an excellent opportunity to discover a completely new dimension of underwater adventure.

What will you learn?

During the theoretical classes you will learn how to predict the weather by carefully watching surrounding, you will also learn how ships are built, which will make it easier for you to learn how to navigate on their decks later. We also want you to be fully prepared for diving at a sea from a diving boat. All dives will take place in sea or ocean, on real wrecks. During these dives you will practise using the reel and Jersey Reel for emergency ascend in difficult conditions, methods of  cutting out from the nets and all rescue procedures that will ensure your safety in case of various problems.
