Learn the techniques used to search for lost objects underwater in the PADI Search & Recovery! Develop and use search patterns and efficient tools and communication techniques to make sure you search an area fully. Use lifting devices to bring a recovered object to the surface, practice knot tying techniques and the safe use of lines underwater during that very hands-on specialty. It takes hard work and lots of time underwater, but not everybody can just go and look for treasure in the sea!
The PADI Search & Recovery course can also build upon the Search and Recovery adventure dive of the PADI Advanced Open Water course.
Freestyle difference: We have set up a special training site especially for this course!
