PADI Search and Recovery

Diving Tenerife - PADI Search and Recovery Speciality

Oops sorry about this I've just dropped the car keys in the harbour...

NO !!The strap on my computer has broken and it fallen overboard!

People accidentally drop things from docks, off boats or even loose things 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, along with methods to recover small, large or awkward items. Search and recovery can be challenging, but a whole lot of fun.

What will you learn on the Search and Recovery Speciality?

Gathering information and resources, then carefully planning a search are the first important steps you learn. During four scuba dives you’ll practice:

  • Planning a search operation based on facts gathered about a lost object prior to the dive.
  • Locating large and small objects using various search patterns.
  • Using a compass and natural navigation for search patterns
  • Using a lift bag for large or heavy objects, plus other recovery methods.
  • Limited visibility search techniques

How long will it take?

Four dives over two days.

Advanced Open Water and beyond or, a suggestion from the experienced

"If you are a doing continuing education course, Advanced Open Water or beyond why not give yourself a day before you start the course and have a pre-course diving day."

Even experienced divers, who dive regularly, when they change diving environments/locations they know it will take couple of dives to settle down and fully relax. There is a lot going on maybe they are using different equipment than they are used to, the need to get weighting sorted out and all dive centers run slightly differently.

So why not make you life easy and get the most out of your course.
