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.

Cost: $645, including all equipment hire, materials, training and certification fees
Duration: 3.5 days
Structure: The first day is spent in the classroom and the pool, followed by 2 days in open water, ending with 2 scenarios where we simulate different emergency situations where your new skills are applied in context.
Prerequisites: 12+ years old and PADI Adventure Diver with Navigation (or equivalent). A current CPR and 1st Aid certification. If you have pre-existing medical conditions that may affect you when diving you will need clearance from a physician. Please see PADIMedical_Statement-1.pdf for the medical questionnaire.
