PADI Search & Recovery Speciality

Have you ever dropped something in the water? Are you looking for lost treasure? The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course will teach you effective ways to find objects underwater and bring them to the surface.

You'll learn search and recovery dive planning, organisation, procedures, techniques and potential problems. You'll also cover limited visibility, search patterns and safe object recovery using lift devices.

The PADI Search & Recovery certification counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating and is run over 4 open water dives with your instructor.
