In association with the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) and in partnership with the British Diving Safety Group (BDSG), PADI offers the PADI RNLI Diver Sea Survival course.
RNLI is the largest charity that saves lives at sea around the coasts of the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, as well as on some inland waterways.
The PADI RNLI Diver Sea Survival course prepares you for the worst case scenarios. Accidents do happen, that is a fact of life, but another fact is that, more often than not, most accidents are avoidable if those involved have the right set of skills at hand as the number one cause of diving accident, is human error. Samos Sub is one of the few dive centers in Greece where you can take this course. We will provide you with the skills and knowledge to deal with unexpected emergency situations whilst diving. You will also learn how to initiate a faster and more effective rescue. Mastering sea survival skills will give you additional confidence if you find yourself in an unwanted situation whilst diving.
