      Hi Chris
      Cool, mission accomplished! To make it attractive enough ;) But on the other hand I’m just showing how the things with diving really are!
      Sure, once certified there are lots of interests you can follow like as you said Wreck Diving and there are loads of them to discover around the world.
      Here in Playa del Carmen we have also one its name “Mama Viña” and recently we were diving the Wreck in Cancun and this was really awesome! Later on I’m gonna put some more pics and videos, so stay tuned… ;)
      Thanks for your comment and I’m happy you liked it! :)
