|Search & Recovery|
It’s been a good dive in less than optimal visibility. You and your buddy are making your way over to the boat when you hear a splash. “My mask!” The trail of small bubbles quickly disappears in the moderate current.
A couple of divers in the water behind you say, “Hey, We have plenty of air. We’ll go get it.” The distraught diver on the boat calls down, “But in this current and visibility, it could be anywhere by now.”
You'll learn search and recovery dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems. You'll also cover limited visibility, search patterns and safe object recovery using lift devices. Learn the use of lift bag, rope, compass, knots, slate, marker buoy and finger spool.
