Bring home some lost pirate treasure!!!
Have you ever lost anything whilst diving? The PADI Search and Recovery Course will teach you how to find lost objects underwater and how to safely bring them to the surface. You will learn several search patterns suitable for searching in different situations and practice rigging a lift bag and bringing your found objects to the surface in a safe and controlled manner. This is also a great course for anyone who is planning to complete their Rescue Diver Course as the skills that you learn are equally applicable to searching for a missing diver or casualty.
