Where better to embark on the challenging PADI Rescue Diver program than the idyllic location of Dahab on the Sinai Peninsula. Formerly a simple Bedouin settlement, the town has now become a thriving mecca for divers worldwide. Take to the crystal clear, warm blue waters and learn new skills as you complete the Rescue Diver course off the beaches in Dahab.
We begin the tour in Sharm el Sheikh, where you are met at the airport and then transferred to Dahab. Once in Dahab, we’ll introduce you to the staff at the Dive Centre and you’ll spend the next 3 days acquiring the skills necessary to become a Rescue Diver.
The PADI Rescue Diver course comprises mainly in-water training that teaches you the skills necessary for the prevention and management of scuba diving emergencies. The course itself covers: (a) self rescue, (b) diver stress, (c) diving first aid, (d) emergency management and equipment considerations, (e) swimming and non-swimming assists, (f) panicked diver response, (g) underwater problems, (h) missing diver procedures, (i) surfacing an unconscious diver, (j) in-water artificial respiration, (k) dive accident scenarios, (l) first aid procedures for pressure related accidents and (m) exits.
This is an extensive course, which not only provides you with the skills to become a safer diver, but also teaches you to focus on other divers and identify and prevent diving accidents before they occur.

"The crew were tops! Very knowledgable and helpful in everything and being so down to earth! the layout of the truck alone puts all other overland trucks to shame. I had comments from people on the other tours and they all said they were very jealous of our truck. i have enjoyed my time immensely... would do it all over again!"
