Lifting bag


The PADI Search and Recovery Course...

Have you ever dropped something in the water? Are you looking for lost "treasure"? The PADI Search and Recovery 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.

Find lost items and lift them to the surface. It's fun to use the lift bag. Not only are these skills fun, but very practical and ultimately useful because eventually, one day, you might just loose something in the water!

As a Search and Recovery Diver, you'll know how to search for and recover it.
