“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.
The Fun Part
The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.

Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
Emergency management and equipment
Rescuing panicked divers
Rescuing unresponsive divers
The Scuba Gear You Use

Check with your local dive shop about the gear you’ll use during this course. You can find all the equipment and PADI material a Blue Coral Diving’s dive shop..
The Learning Materials You Need
The PADI Rescue Diver crewpack includes all materials required to complete the PADI Rescue Diver course – including a pocket mask. You’ll learn how to think like a rescue diver and preview skills you’ll practice with your PADI Instructor. Once your Rescue Diver course is complete, you can review the DVD to refresh your dive safety skills as needed. This tool box of knowledge and technique will give you the expertise to handle almost any emergency situation.
To enroll in the PADI Rescue Diver course, you must:
Be 15 years or older
Have a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification (or have a qualifying certification from another organization)
Be trained and current for first aid and CPR within the previous two years (ask your instructor about Emergency First Response CPR and first aid courses).
Pricing and Schedule
4 days $390 for 1 pax, 2 pax less $10, 3 pax less $20 and 4 pax less $30 per person. (includes all equipment hire, instruction, PADI ID card, transfers, lunch and free T-shirt).
The first day focuses on the theory side of the course, which is more involved than the Open Water and Advanced courses. Watch the DVD and complete the knowledge reviews. Complete a final exam.
Complete 10 exercises in the pool involving self rescue, diver rescue on the surface, and underwater. Also discuss and practice other aspects of the course.
Open water scenario 1 and 2. This will put into practice what you have learned in the pool and in the theory session.
Open water scenarios 3 and 4. This is the last day of the course and can be quite intense, as there is lots going on and you have to manage all aspects of the rescue and the boat. Great fun day for you and our staff!
Once completed, you will be a Rescue Diver and you will never dive the same way again. This is the best course PADI offers for the non-professional by far.
