Challenge yourself, create adventure and experience the thrill of search and recovery diving. The PADI Search and Recovery Specialty course will show you first-hand how to find and recover objects from depth safely and ensure you know how to find the treasure and get it to the surface!
Gathering information and resources, then carefully planning a search are the first important steps you learn. During four scuba dives you’ll practice swimming search patterns using your compass and natural navigation and locating large and small objects using various search patterns. you’ll also use a lift bag for large or heavy objects, plus other recovery methods and plan a search operation based on facts gathered about a lost object prior to the dive.
