Rescue Diver

Secondary Headline

All divers know that safety should be their top priority but how does one make sure that safety is like second nature? Taking the PADI Rescue Diver course will help you dive with confidence. This class is a priceless investment in your safety, as well as the safety of others, and Lahaina Divers is here to help you achieve success.

The course requires four classroom sessions and 5 open water sessions. Divers complete the class knowing they are better buddies and more aware as divers. Be a better  buddy!!

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, become more confident in your skills as a diver, and finish knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. In this your instructor will prepare you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. After completing this course with Lahaina divers you will be able to self-rescue, recognize and manage stress in other divers, use emergency management equipment and rescue panicked divers.
