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

The sooner Padanaram Diving can deploy a diver, the higher the chances of retrieval.
Waiting is never a good idea. Currents, tides, and underwater prop wash will move your item, making the search more difficult. Additionally, the flow of water over the search area tends to bury the item under silt, making it nearly impossible to find the lost item.
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, and divers following the best search patterns to find lost items.
Padanaram Diving Company has incredible success rates. Based on our record, the chances of retrieval are very high, especially if the above tips are used. We've found everything from jewelry to walking sticks.
