RESCUE DIVER Prevent problems, and manage them if they occur.

PADI Rescue Diver Course

"Challenging" and "rewarding" best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course.

Become a safer diver by learning how to deal with issues and accidents both underwater and on the surface. From panic to an unconscious diver this course will provide the skills, knowledge as well as provide an opportunity to for you to put them into practice.

Why do it with us? Our rescue course is kept small, only a maximum of 4 participants, there is always a Dive Master with an instructor to assist with the Open Water component of the course. You will practice skills in the pool, off the shore and off the boats to put your skills to the test.
