SEARCH AND RECOVERY DIVER The Padi Search And Recovery Diver Course

The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Course with the Playground Dive Shop

It happens: People accidentally drop things from docks, off boats or even while scuba diving. If you’ve ever lost something in the water and wanted to go find it, then the PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course is for you. There are effective ways to search for objects underwater that increase your chances of success. And there are good and better methods to bring up small, large or just awkward items. Search and recovery can be challenging, but a whole lot of fun. 

PADI (Junior) Advanced Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old can enroll in the Search and Recover Diver course. PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers with a PADI Underwater Navigator certification also qualify.


The Fun Part

The fun part of this course is giving your dive skills a polish you may not have thought possible.

What You Learn

  • 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
  • How to use a lift bag and other recovery methods
  • Limited visibility search techniques

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact the Playground Dive Shop.

Your Next Adventure

Because you often need to navigate to specific spots to find lost items, the Underwater Navigator course can help you perfect your navigation skills.

For more information about this or other PADI courses have a chat with one of the staff members of the Playground Dive Shop.
