Did you ever accidentally drop something from the dock or boat in the water? It happens often, but it can be hard to find back or getting it up out of the water. The PADI Search and Recovery Specialty is the perfect course to learn how to find and recover any object that has been dropped into the water. The PADI Search and Recovery Specialty course is a challenging but definitely a fun course. In the open water dives the PADI instructor will learn you different search patterns using a compass, using a lift bag, and planning search operations. To find any object underwater you first need to determine the spot where you lost it.
