While most people think “ship” when they think of a wreck. However wreck diving includes other
craft, such as sail boats, houseboats, railroad cars, automobiles, aircraft, military craft and even
building materials. Because of this, few dive environments lack wrecks, so virtually every diver
ends up diving on wrecks from time to time.

Wreck Diving is all about experiencing different sites. Some people do wreck
diving for the curiosity, others looking the history, some are looking at the
aquatic life on around the wreck and others are into photography. Whatever
