Rescue Diver changes how you think about scuba diving

Until now, you have been learning about improving your personal dive skills. As a Rescue Diver, you start to look beyond yourself and consider the many other things that affect the safety of the dive for you and your dive buddies. You learn how to prevent and, if necessary, manage a diving accident.

Rescue Diver Course content

Like any emergency training, PADI Rescue Diver begins with prevention: how to judge all of the factors surrounding the dive and prevent problems.

Accidents do happen though. And the PADI Rescue Diver course will prepare you to manage diving emergencies, in case you ever need to. You’ll cover:

  • Self-rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers
  • Diving accident scenarios

Rescue scenarios are key. They help you develop a routine, which is important in a high stress emergency situation. In Dahab, you will find many professional divers participating in rescue scenarios – they know that practice and a good emergency routine build the confidence required to manage a dive emergency.

What’s included

  • 3 day PADI Rescue Diver course
  • PADI manual (digital pdf or book) included
  • Optional upgrade to PADI eLearning or Touch manual, with integrated video and interactive quizzes
  • Full equipment rental


To enroll in Rescue Diver, you must have:

  • Advanced Open Water certification (30m)
  • 20 logged dives: If you haven’t got enough dives yet, just book some diving before your course.
  • EFR: It’s easy to add EFR to your Rescue Diver course: day 1 EFR, days 2-4 Rescue.
  • If you are a medical professional, or have an existing first aid certificate, you already meet the EFR requirement – please ask us about this.

Booking options

  • You can book the PADI Rescue Diver only
  • You can add EFR, accommodation, transfers and extra dives – as you book
  • Or you can contact us and we’ll be happy to tailor a package for you.
  • You can even start your Rescue Diver today, with PADI eLearning!

Dahab and Desert Divers feels like home! I stayed in Dahab for around 2 Months for diving and I had a really great time with Desert Divers. During this time I made an internship for doing my advanced diving cours as well as EFR and rescue and it was so much fun! All the instructors are so knowledgeable and competent, I felt completely comfortable the wohle time. The more day trips desert divers offer (e.g. Abu Galum) are really cool and the dive sites are amazing!!! The atmosphere in the camp is so reaxed and everyone is so friendly. Tanis, Said and Hameed are so nice and made me really feel like at home! I miss you a lot and I can't wait to come back to Dahab soon!
