PADI Rescue Diver Certification in Key Largo

PADI Rescue Diver Course Description

Key Largo is the diving capital of the world, the ideal place to take your scuba certification to the next level.

During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem-solving skills until they become second nature. You will learn and practice self-rescue, because if you are not a confident rescuer, then when performing a rescue, there could become 2 victims. 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.

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken.
