Search and Recovery Course

I had heaps of fun doing the search and recovery course. It's amazing how difficult it is to find small things underwater. On the course we learnt a bunch of different search patterns and had plenty of practice finding objects in a 'real world' scenario underwater. The vis was pretty bad so there was no cheating to be had :) Highly recommend this course for anyone looking for more dive training.
