While on vacation, we offer several Caribbean dive courses and certifications. If you have your Advanced Certification, we can certify you as a PADI Rescue Diver during the course of one week. This is a little more demanding then previous dive courses as you will be learning rescue and life-saving skills. However, it is well worth it to achieve this certification, and definitely very hard to find the time during your “real world” daily and weekly routines.
Being more confident in the water is what every diver desires and the PADI Rescue Diver course will help you get there. The PADI Rescue Diver course will expand your knowledge and experience beyond purely the recreational level. These Caribbean dive courses teach scuba divers to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well-being of other scuba divers. You’ll be ready to rescue someone in an emergency, but you’ll also have the skills and awareness to prevent problems. Although this course is serious, it is an enjoyable way to build your confidence.
