Heralded by many as the most fun and most rewarding PADI scuba course that they have ever taken, we are happy to offer the PADI Rescue course on a regular basis. This course is valuable to every recreational diver and is also a prerequisite should one want to advance to professional levels like Dive Master or Instructor. The Rescue Diver course emphasizes a greater awareness, self-sufficiency and leadership role than any other PADI courses to this point. It is challenging, fun and exciting and really builds a sense of camaraderie amongst student divers.
Our Rescue course runs over1- evening (Friday) and 1 weekend. The Friday evening consist of classroom session to cover all knowledge covered in your PADI Rescue Manual which is included in the course.
Students are encouraged to have all knowledge reviews completed by the beginning of course and to review CPR & first aid guidelines.
The ocean portion of the Rescue Diver course is over the weekend 4-5 hours each day. There are some skills reviewed and evaluated at depth, at the surface and at the shore. Students will have a chance to practice and adapt techniques learned in the pool to the local open water environment. Divers will also be involved in scenarios and problem solving. Students in the course will find themselves in a leadership role during the ocean portion of the course – creating more aware, confident, thinking divers than any PADI course that precedes the rescue.
