Scuba Diving Emergency Management Course

Visit our dive shop in Lahaina for your PADI Rescue Diver certification to discover why this PADI course always gets regarded as a rewarding and crucial step forward in your scuba diving development. Taking this PADI course with us builds confidence in your scuba diving skills while teaching you to prepare for unexpected emergencies. The PADI Rescue Diver course also brings you to the last step before achieving a professional diver rating. 

By completing the PADI Rescue Diver scuba certification course, you will learn how to manage different dive-related emergencies through a combination of dive theory, training exercises, and rescue scenarios. Dive theory comprises two academic sessions, coupled with independent study. We advise you to complete the requisite Knowledge Review questions before beginning the course.

Scuba diving in Lahaina provides the perfect setting to practice shore entries and exits. The ten in-water training exercises get practiced on the surface and underwater. We like to practice this training repeatedly until you feel relaxed and confident with every rescue skill. Ultimately, each of the ten exercises gets evaluated during two rescue scenarios. We make your experience true to life and memorable by using Banyan Tree Divers Maui assistants to create emergencies.

What to Expect for Your Rescue Course

We operate as a mobile Maui dive shop and choose the specific dive site the day before your course begins. This way, we can ensure we use the best Maui diving sites for your PADI Rescue Diver training based on conditions. We begin the morning at our headquarters in Lahaina to get you fitted for your equipment and discuss the dives for the day. Afterward, we drive to the pre-selected dive site. Would you please let us know if you will not have a rental car? The usual meeting time is 8:30 am, and you can expect to finish each day at 4 pm.

Our Maui dive company aims to provide both convenience and professionalism. We send you specific meetup instructions by 5 pm the day before your scheduled course. After your first day of training dives, we can decide on the location for the second day with you in person, so you know where to meet us.  

Our previous PADI Rescue Diver students often tell us that this course was their favorite Maui activity. It is challenging, but at the same time, very rewarding because you immediately improve your scuba diving skills and general underwater awareness.
