PADI Wreck Specialty Instructor course
MSDT • PADI Specialty Instructor course, Koh Tao, Thailand
Diving isn’t just about swimming around beautiful coral reefs. Ships, airplanes and even cars all lay at the bottom of the sea waiting to be explored. As a PADI wreck specialty instructor you will be able to teach students how to safely navigate and explore wrecks including using penetration lines to go inside.
Wreck diving around Koh Tao
The ex US Navy Ship HTMS Sattakut was donated to Koh Tao and sunk in 2011. Lying upright at 30 metres depth, this is the perfect wreck to complete training dives on. With cannons on bow and stern and an abundance of marine life inside and out, the HTMS Sattakut provides a great training experience for both novice and advanced divers.
