Wreck Diver

Wreck Diver Specialty




Learn the skills necessary to safely dive wrecks. Long Island is the shipwreck capital of the world. Most dives off of the Long Island boats are Wreck dives. Come take the Wreck Diver course with us at Good Life Divers, where we prepare you for a fun and exciting life as a Northeast Wreck diver.

The difference between Good Life Divers and other training companies
  • Included in every Wreck course is a Buoyancy, Trim, Propulsion and Equipment workshop. Take your diving to the next level with our wreck course.
  • Even though we at Good Life Divers feel that fresh water training sites are excellent places to learn and develop skills needed to become a proficient┬ádiver, no mater how nice the wrecks are there we want your skills to be real and not just simulated.
  • At least two of the training dives will be conducted from a boat exploring real shipwrecks.
  • We will not issue a Wreck Diver Certification unless we explore/train on real wrecks.
  • You will come out of this course ready for recreational level penetration of Wrecks.
  • Minimum number of dives needed for this course is 4. We will do more than that, at no extra cost (excluding boat fees) to get you to the level of a recreational Wreck diver.
