Have you ever wanted to dive a shipwreck???

Divers have different reasons for being interested in wreck diving. 

CURIOSITY - Divers are fascinated by wrecks and want to know what is inside them.

HISTORY - Some divers like to research and understand the historical prospective of the wreck.

AQUATIC LIFE - Wrecks become man-made reefs that attract lots of aquatic life.

PHOTOGRAHY - Wrecks make dramatic backgrounds for photos of divers and aquatic life.
