It happens: People accidentally drop things from docks, off boats or even while scuba diving. If you’ve ever lost something in the water and wanted to go find it, then the PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course is for you. There are effective ways to search for objects underwater that increase your chances of success. And there are good and better methods to bring up small, large or just awkward items. Search and recovery can be challenging, but a whole lot of fun.
You must be 12 years old as at enrolment.
You should be certified as either PADI (Junior) Advanced Open Water Diver, PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver with a PADI Underwater Navigator certification or equivalent certification with other agencies. You may need to show proof of dive logs upon request.
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 will practice:
- Swimming search patterns using your compass and natural navigation
- Locating large and small objects using various search patterns
- Using a lift bag for large or heavy objects, plus other recovery methods
- Planning a search operation based on facts gathered about a lost object prior to the dive
Make an appointment with us to drop by at Sunny Cove to collect your PADI Deep Diver material. Once you are done going through, you will need to schedule an appointment with your instructor to review the key points.
