Rescue Diver

The PADI Rescue Diver Course

“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course with bubbles. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.  The focus of diving move to others, in previous course you have mainly concentrated on looking after yourself but with the PADI Rescue Diver course the focus shifts to recognising problems with others, what to do and how to help them.  As David, our full time Course Director says “Diving with a PADI Rescue Diver is great because you know in the very unlikely event that something does happen you have someone with you who know what to do.  Knowing that makes your dive that bit more enjoyable”
