PADI Rescue Course
The PADI Rescue Course is described by some as challenging but rewarding, with many saying they found the course the most enjoyable experience of their diving career. You will take part in scenarios that teach you how to effect a rescue of yourself, recognize and manage stress in other divers, emergency management and equipment use and how to rescue panicked divers and unresponsive divers. And all this, surrounded by the amazing background of Koh Lanta´s dive sites.
