​Wreck Dives in August with Tim Yeo

Posted by Tim Yeo on

Wreck Dives in August

In May of this year, the Indonesian Navy arrested 10 divers trying to loot a wreck in the Riau Islands in Indonesia. When the Navy caught up with the underwater thieves, 3 of them were suffering from decompression sickness and had to be rushed to the nearest hospital.

Two things the PADI Wreck Specialty Course teaches are how to safely dive wrecks, which are usually located in deep water and how to research the history of a wreck and determine the legality of salvaging the wreck so you don't end up at the wrong side of the law.

There are opportunities to try your hand at finding sunken treasure like diving the Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de Atocha in Florida. For $2,500 you get to dive alongside professional underwater treasure hunters and try your hand at finding sunken treasure.

But before you grab a tank and a metal detector, come join us in August for our next Wreck Weekend in San Diego where you can earn your Wreck Specialty certification diving the 366 foot Canadian Destroyer "Yukon", your first step in being an underwater Indiana Jones or Lara Croft.
