The PADI Search and Recovery Diver course opens up possibilities of treasure hunting, and the more essential and frequently occurring skill of something being dropped off a boat with the necessity for someone to go down and find it. The course will teach you effective ways to find those objects underwater and bring them to the surface.

Found some exciting treasure that you want to keep and facing a daunting task of bringing up an object that may be too large or awkward to carry? This course will help you to tackle that challenge and effectively bring it up with minimal risk.

The PADI Search and Recovery course will teach you how to plan and organise a search and recovery dive, the procedures you will need to follow, the techniques needed and how to deal with any potential problems. You will also learn how to locate large and small objects using search patterns and how to use the lift bag and other recovery methods that may be needed. You will also learn how to perform these tasks in limited visibility with specific search techniques.

By taking this course you might just become one of the most popular buddies on a potential treasure hunt dive — oh and of course if someone accidentally drops their camera off the boat.
