SEARCH AND RECOVERY DIVER The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Course

The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Course with DIVE SOURCE

What is neutral buoyancy? Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float. It can be a tricky thing. Divers who’ve mastered the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover, almost as if by thought. They interact gently with aquatic life and affect their surroundings minimally. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course refines the basic skills you learned as a PADI Open Water Diver and elevates them to the next level.

What You Learn

  • Search and recovery dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and how to deal with potential problems
  • How to locate large and small objects using search patterns
  • How to use a lift bag and other recovery methods
  • Limited visibility search techniques


This course is open to anyone who is a certified Advanced Open Water Diver and is 12 years old or older.

A full set of gear is required, two tanks,  as well as students, will need a compass and underwater slate. It is also recommended that students have a dive light, marker buoys, lines & reels, and a lift bag. Students receive 50% off any rental gear they will need.
