PADI Search and Recovery Diver Course Thailand

Price from: 9,500 THB

Course duration: 2 Days | 4 Dives

As a PADI Search and Recovery diver you will learn the techniques for searching the bottom for missing items and how to recover them to the surface. Search and recovery is both a useful skill and an enjoyable challenge.

Search and recovery divers explore the bottom of the ocean or a lake looking for things lost from the surface. Many of those items we find are small enough to put in our pocket. But what do we do if they are not? What if they are too heavy for us to bring safely to the surface? And what if we need to find something that has been lost somewhere in our dive site.

Every year recreational divers discover long lost wrecks or artifacts around the world. Even if you do not long lost treasure, having the knowledge on how to locate or lift an object is always useful.

During the course, you will make at least four dives searching for and recovering objects of different sizes lost in varying search areas. It is not unusual to make more than four dives because it may take more than one dive to find and recover a single object.

Enriched air NITROX is a course that goes well with Search and Recovery. Nitrox enables longer bottom time for longer searches. If you are Nitrox qualified you will have the option of using Nitrox on your dives. If you are not Nitrox qualified then you can combine a certification with this course.
