Search & Recovery

 

 

In the PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course, you learn search and recovery dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and how to deal with potential problems. You learn how to locate large and small objects using search patterns, and various ways for lifting them to the surface. Not only do these skills make you more capable and confident in the water, but most Search and Recovery Divers eventually end up searching for and recovering something they lost themselves.

 

• Search patterns, lift bag use and recovery methods

• Limited visibility techniques and navigation for search and recovery

• Certification counts toward the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating.
