Search & Recovery Specialty dive #2. Very strong current today at Koko Craters made it difficult to run search patterns underwater while searching for our target item which was a dive weight somewhere on the sea floor. The new DPV made the search a lot easier with the strong current.

Search & Recovery Specialty dive #1. Very strong current today at Koko Craters made it difficult to run search patterns underwater while searching for our target item which was a Pony Bottle somewhere on the sea floor. Using my new DPV made the search a lot easier with the strong current. Used a lift bag to recover the item and raise it to the surface.
