Most divers find wrecked ships, airplanes and even automobiles nearly irresistible because they’re intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery, and usually teeming with aquatic life. The PADI Wreck Diver course teaches you the ins and outs of rewarding, responsible wreck diving.

 Michigan is home to some of the BEST Shipwreck diving in the world! Your PADI Wreck Diver course with Motor City Scuba is your ticket to diving the shipwrecks of the Great Lakes.
