Rescue divers course (PADI)

Take the next step in your scuba diving certification

Our PADI Rescue Diver course is conducted over four days in conjunction with our three day, two-night liveaboard dive trip. The course consists of one day of pool and classroom training at our PADI Five Star Dive and Career Development Centre followed by the three-day liveaboard trip. You will get up to 10 dives on a variety of spectacular outer reef locations. These dives consist of a combination of training and recreational dives.

The Rescue Diver course is a crucial step in your diving education and is highly recommended to all divers. Throughout this course, you will develop your knowledge and skills to better manage diving incidents which could occur. Through this course you will come to appreciate and understand the importance of this training relevant to diver safety, incident minimization and management.
