PADI Search and Recovery – 4 Dives

These are invaluable practical skills, and will certainly be used beyond the training course – both for yourself and your dive buddies…

it’s amazing how many things people drop – So you can help them find it again!!!

Over the FOUR DIVES on this program, you’ll gain experience of circular rope searches, expanding square and U-shape search patterns for medium to large sized items like torches & knives etc, as well as how to coordinate and set up a jack-stay search for very small objects such as jewellery.

Techniques for rigging and lifting different sized objects are also practiced. Hazards and problems with search and recovery dives are discussed.

Search techniques learned here are applied on the PADI Rescue Diver course when searching for missing divers – quite serious stuff… but great fun in training.
