Search and Recovery


Whether it's   the gold of a sunken ship, a lost ring or simply the buddy's dive light   accidently lost, there are times in which the appropriate training to search for lost objects underwater would be beneficial.

You will also   learn the correct handling of one or more lifting bags in order to bring heavy objects securely to the surface.
