The PADI ReActivate or Refresh with Blue Water Divers

Has it been a while since you’ve been scuba diving? Do you feel like your scuba skills and knowledge are a bit rusty? There are two options to choose from. Either a Scuba Refresher or a ReActivate. The Scuba Refresher is just an in-water practice session. It reacquaints you with diving so that you're back to feeling comfortable in the underwater world in less than a day. 

ReActivate course

The ReActivate program is an online course with the in-pool session ( refresher ). This is a more indepth course with an online portion.We send the online code from PADI to be completed by the date of your in-person refresher. The ReActivate course is now Available to Divers from Other Organization.

Please send us a copy, or bring in a copy, of your entry-level Scuba certifiation. The certification will need a minimum of four open water training dives. If your certification card does not have a photo, please bring a photo ID to match the name on your certification card. 

The Fun Part

Brush up on your scuba knowledge and skills. Improve your diving ability, and get your scuba gear ready for your next scuba vacation or diving holiday.

What you Learn

You'll go over scuba knowledge you learned during your initial training with the Blue Water Divers Team. Then, practice fundamental skills in a pool or a confined water area. You'll review:

  • Safe diving practices
  • Dive planning fundamentals
  • Problem management
  • Breathing air at depth
  • Recreational diving and dive tables: basic knowledge
  • Recreational diving and dive tables: dive planning

After you complete the knowledge assessment online, you go through the Confined Water Skills Preview. You'll review information about each skill, why it’s important, points to remember when performing the skill and a short video clip. Completing this section just before practicing is a great way to refresh your knowledge of how each skill is performed.

The Scuba Review course is particularly beneficial if you:

  • Are a PADI Open Water Diver course referral student who wants a refresher prior to making your open water training dives
  • Are a PADI Scuba Diver who wants to upgrade to Open Water Diver
  • Just haven’t scuba dived in a while and want to get familiar again

The Scuba Gear You Use

You'll use all the basic scuba gear. Check with Blue Water Divers about gear rentals and packages offered with this course. You can find everything you need at Blue Water Divers.

Scuba Review: No materials required.
