Search and Recovery Diver
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. Small, large or just awkward, there is a way to bring them up.
Find lost items and lift them to the surface. It’s fun to use the lift bag. Not only are these skills fun, but very practical and ultimately useful because eventually, you’ll lose something in the water. As a Search and Recovery Diver, you’ll know how to search for and recover it.
You may be able to earn college credit for the PADI Search and Recovery Diver course.
– Search and recovery dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and how to deal with potential problems
– How to locate large and small objects using search patterns

To purchase learning materials and equipment, contact your local PADI dive shop or resort
Because you often need to navigate to specific spots to find lost items, the Underwater Navigator course can help you perfect your navigation skills.
