Rescue Diver

The best buddy one can ever have is a self-reliant diver who not only can manage themselves, but can assist other people in difficult circumstances.

The skills you will learn in the PADI Rescue Diver Course will expand your knowledge of diving, increase your level of diving skills, and make you more aware of what is happening around you in the diving environment.
