Whether it is the gold of a sunken ship, a lost ring or simply the lamp that your buddy was accidentally lost. Sometimes it would be good to have the right training for searching for lost underwater objects and that is exactly what the SSI Search and Recovery specialty is all about.
Most divers have no idea where to start with a search and recovery activity. This requires a special training that Open Water Divers and even Advanced Divers usually do not have. SSI offers a structured program for Search and Recovery to experience more pezier without compromising safety while working with a riser balloon.
During the 2 dives in the Search and Recovery program you will learn to perform different search patterns using ropes and compasses and to plan search and recovery activities in a team. You will learn to work correctly with one or more riser balloons to safely take heavy objects to the surface.
