Search & Recovery Specialty

Regardless of the underwater objects being sought out and looking to be recovered, having the appropriate skills to find and bring back objects under the water are beneficial to any diver. Whether it’s treasure caught in a shipwreck, jewelry that has fallen to the ocean floor, or your equipment that was left behind, there are times this skill is called upon. At Waterworld we offer a structured program for Search and Recovery. In this course you will learn how to perform different search patterns with the use of ropes and compasses. You will also learn how to plan a search and recovery operation in a team environment.

Recovering heavy objects once found can be a challenge all in its own. For this you will learn the skills of correctly handling one or more lifting bags in order to bring heavy objects securely to back to the surface of the water.
