LOST ITEM RETRIVAL
Steps to Increase Chance of Finding
MARK THE LOCATION
If on a dock mark the exact location item fell from
If on a boat try and mark location with GPS
Find a geographic landmark to use as a reference
Try and figure out what tide you are in
DO NOT go in the water, panic searching ends up stirring up the bottom and makes the find nearly impossible for the diver
CALL US ASAP
The sooner Padanaram Diving can deploy a diver, the higher the chances of retrieval.
Waiting is never the best idea because currents, tides, and underwater prop wash will move your item making the search more difficult. Padanaram Harbor also has a very soft and silty bottom enabling objects to easily get buried.
LET US DO THE REST
Padanaram Diving has a crew of trained professional divers that use multiple techniques and technologies for lost item retrieval.
We use magnets, underwater metal detectors, ROV's (underwater drone) and divers doing a recovery search patter to find lost items. Our success rate in summer 2020 was 93%.
