Sunken treasures will be of little use if they remain sunken! Take the PADI Search & Recovery Speciality Course and ensure the submerged stash is claimed for you. Of course, in the real world, treasure troves are rare, but the course will be invaluable should you ever drop or lose something of value overboard. You will be shown methods of finding items and presented with a variety of ways to safely lift or retrieve objects. Equipped with compasses, reels, SMB and lift bags, students get to be a true aquatic Indiana Jones.
