PADI Rescue Diver Certification (departs from La Paz)

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver Certification 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, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, 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.

The PADI Rescue Diver Certification course prepares 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. Topics include:
Self rescue
Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
Emergency management and equipment
Rescuing panicked divers
Rescuing unresponsive divers

And where better to do it than the Sea of Cortez, whose waters are home to some of the best scuba diving anywhere on earth. So take a plunge into waters which are home to legendary visibility and some of the most dazzling displays of soft coral and marine life you’ll ever see.
