Search & Recovery

Search and recovery

“Finding treasure is something every diver thinks of more than once in his/her diving career.”

Whether it’s the gold of a sunken ship, a lost ring or simply the your buddy’s dive light accidentally lost, there are times in which the appropriate training to search for lost objects underwater would be beneficial.

SSI offers a structured program for SEARCH AND RECOVERY where you will learn to perform different search patterns with the help of ropes and compasses, and to plan search and recovery operations in a team.

You will also learn the correct handling of one or more lifting bags in order to bring heavy objects securely to the surface.

If you want to learn more about SEARCH AND RECOVERY, you can buy the manual or the DVD even if you don’t want to sign up for the course.
