Have you ever dropped something in the water? Are you looking for lost “treasure”? The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course will teach you effective ways to find objects underwater and bring them to the surface. Small, large or just awkward, there is a way to bring them up.

You will use the basic scuba diving equipment, an underwater compass and a lift bag. Inquire About Upcoming Classes or come by the store to register!
