This video, filmed by myself in Subic Bay, graphically shows the danger of silt out to wreck divers conducting penetration dives.

What looks like a nice benign compartment, with plenty of light and an obvious exit (well within recreational wreck diving limits) turns into a potential death trap within seconds of the silt being disturbed. All divers who consider wreck penetration should be fully aware of the reality of silt-outs.

If your wreck course didn't teach extensive and trust-worthy guideline procedures... along with limited/zero visibility familiarization and the practice of core emergency skills in those conditions... then you need to question how well you were trained to dive inside wrecks...

Enjoy the video... it's shocking and eye-opening!
