PADI Search and Recovery Diver
If you’ve lost something in the water and want to retrieve it, the PADI Search & Recovery course is for you
Have you ever dropped something in the water? Are you looking for lost “treasure”?
The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course will teach you effective ways to find objects underwater and bring them to the surface. Small, large or just awkward, there is a way to bring them up.
Many factors must be considered when a team plans a search and recovery dive, this will alter how they search and the recovery methods used to achieve the end result. You will learn to asses these factors during the course.
The course can be challenging, but a lot of fun.
During four scuba dives you’ll practice:
- Conducting search patterns using your compass and natural navigation.
