Search and Recovery

Search and Recovery

Search and recovery skills can be extremely useful for a wide range of diving activities. You may be conducting a search operation to locate lost items. You could be exploring an area for valuable or historical pieces. Maybe even searching for lost equipment underwater. Either way, the skills you learn are extremely transferrable, fun and extremely rewarding. Through 4 dives over 2 days divers will look into search patterns, use of an underwater compass, navigating using natural references, locating large and small items, planning your search and lifting heavier or awkward items using lifting bags. Includes: Course tuition, online manual, certification, tanks and weights. Does not include: Equipment (full equipment available at €20 per day).
