Course of Search & Recovery in Tenerife
It’s been a good dive in less than optimal visibility. You and your buddy are making your way over to the boat when you hear a splash. “My mask!” The trail of small bubbles quickly disappears in the moderate current.
A couple of divers in the water behind you say, “Hey, We have plenty of air. We’ll go get it.” The distraught diver on the boat calls down, “But in this current and visibility, it could be anywhere by now.”
“No problem!” About 5 minutes later our heroes resurfaces, mask in hand. How are some divers able to find such things so easily? It’s all about the training.
The PADI Search And Recovery Specialty will give you the skills and confidence to be able to find submerged objects and safely bring them to the surface even in low-visibility situations. Your instructor will guide you in the procedures and techniques for organizing a search, utilizing effective underwater patterns and how to properly and safely secure lift devices.
