Project Description

RESCUE DIVER COURSE

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed.

During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Must be at least 12 years old
