PADI Search and Recovery Diver Description
PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty Course at Underwater Vision
It is a downer when you drop something of value in the water. A dive computer, a ring, a propeller or the rudder of a sailboat, all of it worth something to someone and sometimes, it is not an option to leave it there for someone else to find!
What will you learn?
Gathering information and resources, then carefully planning a search are the first important steps you learn. During four scuba dives you’ll practice:
- Search and recovery dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and how to deal with potential problems
- How to locate large and small objects using search patterns
- How to use a lift bag and other recovery methods
- Limited visibility search techniques
You may be able to get college credit for the Search and Recovery course – while you are on vacation in Utila!
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
