Scuba Refresher

Got a tropical trip coming up but feeling a little rusty? Spend a couple hours in our heated pool with one of our dive professionals who will inspect your gear for you, reacquaint you with gear assembly and care,  and go over the the most important scuba sills such as mask clearing, buoyancy control, and emergency procedures. The course is perfect for the vacationing once-a-year diver. Some people do it before each trip.  It takes approximately 2.5 hours and all the gear you need is provided, however it is strongly recommended scuba divers own their own mask and fins.


Pool Refresher 

Ideal for warm water divers who dive once or twice a year and have a trip coming up. We have many divers take this every year before their big dive trip.
This method has two options, group ($199) and private ($349). Gear is included.

Add PADI ReActivate to refresh academic concepts. (computer/tablet academics refresher) 

PADI ReActivate is an ideal add on for warm water divers who dive once or twice a year and have a trip coming up or perhaps have taken a few years off from diving. You will receive a new C-card  with your "ReActivated" date on it so it is also great for people who have lost their PADI certification cards. ReActivate is a $69.95 add-on to option 1 above. (Available only to PADI divers)

A full PADI Open Water Course audit.

Have only a few dives and haven't dived for years? You may want to consider an audit of an entire PADI Open Water Course just as if you are a student. Ideal for certified divers who have taken several years off of diving or had very few dives to begin with. You will join an Open Water Course and attend each pool and open water dive as if you were a new student. This is essentially just a discounted Open Water Course since you will not need to be issued a new card at the end of the class. (Though we can. Replacement PADI cards are $39.95)  You may borrow a PADI Open Water Manual and DVD  for free from our library to review before class if you wish.

Cost: $499
