PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty

Sooner or later, someone you know may lose something in the water.  It may be a mask or other piece of diving equipment.  It could also be a piece of jewelry or even a boat motor.  The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course will show you the equipment and techniques needed to find and recover items underwater.  While it is important to understand that this course will not make you a Commercial Diver, it will introduce you to some of the same basic underwater recovery techniques.
Over a two day period you will conduct a total of four open water dives.  The PADI Search and Recovery course will cover:
  • Planning and conducting an underwater search

  • Search patterns and techniques

  • Visibility and water conditions

  • Potential hazards of underwater search and recovery

  • Techniques for safe rigging and recovery of items (using lift bags)

PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty Course | Have you ever dropped something in the water? Are you looking for lost “treasure”?

Small, large or just awkward, there is a way to bring them up.
