For scuba divers, Pattaya is renowned at Thailand’s wreck-diving capital. With three wrecks in 26-31 meters of water, its the only place in the country where recreational PADI divers can experience the thrill of wreck diving.

As such, Aquanauts are experts at teaching the art of wreck diving through the PADI Wreck Diver specialty course. You’ll learn how to measure and safely penetrate a wreck, gaining a certification that is a requirement to go on dive boats in places like Australia.

The lure of exploring sunken vessels, airplanes and automobiles is something most divers can’t resist.
