PADI Rescue Diver Course

PADI Rescue Diver

Often cited as the most challenging and rewarding of all PADI recreational scuba courses, the Rescue Diver course starts to develop your focus on other divers and slightly away from ‘self’. During the Rescue Diver course, you will learn about responding to diver stress, anxiety and panic. You will also develop your rescue skills via in-water rescue techniques & administering rescue breathes and conducting CPR.

PADI Advanced Open Water

The PADI Advanced Open Water course is - for many recreational divers - the natural progression after completing their Open Water certification. The course is uniquely designed to build upon the skills and competences you learnt in your Open Water course. Under the guidance of your PADI Instructor, you will complete 5 adventure dives, 2 of which are mandatory – deep & navigation dives – and 3 of which you will select with your Instructor.
