Wreck diving is a specific type of scuba diving. Most wreck diving is done on shipwrecks, but wrecks of aircraft are also commonly explored by scuba divers. There is also a lesser number of more exotic wreck which are dived upon, ranging from train and buses to collapsed naval radar stations. All scuba divers require some form of training, but many divers engage in additional training before diving on wrecks. Wreck diving is often subdivided into three types:
- Non-penetration, i.e. swimming over and around the wreck.
- Limited penetration, going into an overhead environment, subject to a limit of 130 feet/40 meters cumulative linear distance to surface (ie. depth plus length of penetration).
- Full penetration, going deeper into the overhead environment in the wreck.
