TDI Advanced Wreck Diver courses are conducted wholly or in part at locations such as Subic Bay in Luzon on the wrecks of El Capitan and USS New York, or by liveaboard at Maestro de Campo Island on the wreck of the MV Mactan. Final course costing and logistics vary accordingly.
To train divers in extended wreck penetration diving, using appropriate trimix and/or nitrox/oxygen gases for diving and decompression.
Must be at least 18 years of age
At least 50 logged dives and either Basic
Wreck Diver or Cavern diver are stated prerequisites. However
this course is generally aimed at technical divers having at a
minimum, Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures or
equivalent, who are sufficiently comfortable with tech diving
equipment and procedures to be able to forwars and learn new
skills in the overhead environment. Preparedness is therefore
best discussed with our instructors.
Program Content and Limits
- • Max. Depth 55m/180ft or the maximum depth to which the student is certified, whichever is the shallower
- • The course contains dry simulations and confined water training working on basic skills, line laying technique, communications and touch contact, emergency procedures etc.
- • At least six penetration
dives, with a minimum 100 minutes of overhead environment time (typically 300-400 minutes in the wrecks ).
- • Decompression and bottom
gases are limited to the previous
certification of the student.
Academic presentations will include:
- • Equipment set up and streamlining, line, spools and reels
- • Lights and hand signals
- • Intro to line skills in a simulated wreck
- • Simulated night dive, lights and hand signals only
- • Missing diver, lost line protocols and touch contact
- • Gas shares through restrictions, gaps and cut line
- • Gas matching, gas management, stress management, lost line drills ( silt outs ), anti silting techniques
