Grand Cayman PADI Search & Recovery Specialty Course

It happens: People accidentally drop things from docks, off boats, or even while on our own Grand Cayman diving trips. If you’ve ever lost something in the water and wanted to go and find it, then the PADI Search & Recovery Diver Specialty course is for you!

In this course, you will learn the techniques needed to search for objects underwater, increasing your chances of finding and retrieving items both large and small.

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

PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Divers age 12 or above can enrol in the Search & Recovery Specialty course. PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers with a PADI Underwater Navigator certification also qualify.
