In the PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course,
you learn search and recovery dive planning, organization, procedures,
how to deal with potential problems. You learn how to locate large
and small objects using search patterns, and various ways for lifting
to the surface and recovering them. We introduce you to limited visibility
techniques, such as using a line to communicate with a buddy who
is beyond visual range. You also learn methods for pinpointing the location
a sinking object from shore, and navigation for search and recovery.
This fun class is like a giant underwater scavenger hunt.
and recovery skills that you learn have many applications, from environmental
cleanups to just scouting for lost treasure. Not
only do these skills make you more capable and confident in the water,
most Search and Recovery Divers eventually end up searching for and
recovering something they lost themselves.
