PADI Rescue Diver
Rescue Diver is one of the most fun and the most rewarding of the PADI courses. With this course you will take care of other divers and learn to anticipate and respond to typical dive problems and emergency diving situations. Your PADI Instructor will create challenging scenarios and will teach and guide you through the many ways that you might manage each situation, based on a set of land and water skills that you will master over the duration of the course. You will learn to handle dangerous and life-threatening situations, as well as how to look for and prevent problems before they arise. This course is designed to push divers out of their comfort zone and to expand their awareness as a diver. Often, this is our students favorite PADI course!
What you will learn:
- Self-rescue techniques
- To recognize and manage diver stress
- To manage emergency situations and to use emergency medical equipment
- Respond to a panicked diver
- Respond to an unconscious diver
The PADI Rescue Diver course is composed of several steps:

- Skill demonstration and practice in confined or open water of self-rescue and rescue techniques.
