The Goose's Wreck Diver Course
You and your dive buddy have stepped off the dive boat. The Divemaster said to follow the descent line down and you will be just off the bow of the wreck. He told you it would be visible, and you could not imagine how inspiring that sight would be. Before you is a wreck from the 1800's, there just for your exploration. Whether they were sunk on purpose for an artifical reef, or a result of a mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past. Most divers find wrecked ships, planes and even automobiles simply irresistible because they are so intriguing to explore. They create exciting avenues of discovery and usually are teeming with aquatic life. The Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.
The Fun Part
The fun part of the Wreck Diver course is visting wrecks, unlocking mysteries and starting to gain the knowledge and experience that allows you to see things that others overlook. Sometimes only the trained, experienced eye recognizes that a small hole or open door likely caused the vessel's demise.
