PADI Rescue Diver Course
Challenging and rewarding best describes the PADI Rescue Diver course. This divecourse will expand your knowledge and experience level. Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well being of other divers.
Although this PADI scuba course is challenging, it is a rewarding way to build your confidence. Rescue Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies. Many divers say this is the best course they’ve ever taken.
