    The FB post and the emails are inconsistent. If for some reason their insurance company really means all divers have to be overhead certified to even dive on the exterior then the Fling won't be able to do many if any trips there. That would be nuts as no scuba association asks for overhead cert to dive a wreck exterior.

    It's been clarified, per Sharon.

    We have been getting a few calls about diving the Kraken and what certification you need to dive it. I hope this information helps.

    To dive the Kraken you will need a wreck certification or a certification that states you are certified to dive in an overhead environment if you are planning on penetrating the wreck. If you are planning to only dive the outside of the wreck your open water or advanced certifications will be fine.

    If you still have any questions, please get me a call at the office 979-233-4445 or call your training agency.

    I asked the question on the FB post this morning and got the same clarification. It's definitely a dive I want to do and maybe it's time for me to get wreck certified.

    The KJenns are booked on the June 8-9 (Th-Fr) trip and since we're not wreck cert, we'll be diving the outside of the wreck.
