If you haven’t been in the water recently and are going away or just want to get back into diving, then we have a few refresher options to make it easy to get back in the water.
Dive shops appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in. Safe diving practices are key to this lifelong hobby and it always more prudent to go over the basics again if it has been a while, or if you are diving in conditions that vary from your norm.
Haven’t been in the water in a while? Come out and have some fun while going over the basics skills you did in the Open Water Certification course. Everyone’s situation is different as to why they require this course, therefore we have some options for you based on your needs.
With re-activate, not only do you get to refresh your skills with an online review and a pool session, but you will also receive a new, re-activated certification card. This option is ideal if you have misplaced or want a second PADI card.
Reactivate contains the following components:
1. Knowledge Development – This develops your familiarity with basic principles and procedures using realistic dive scenarios. The online learning will move on when you understand and are comfortable and confident with the course material. This theory portion must be completed before the pool session. Open Water Check out dives may be required for reactivation and are not included with this portion.
2. Confined Water Portion – You will brush up on those basic scuba skills in the pool, refreshing how to set up your gear, and practice some emergency skills. This may be the option for you if you are feeling a little rusty and wish to gain a bit of confidence again before you take that giant stride.
You’ll use basic scuba gear including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, BCD and a scuba tank. The exposure protection you need will depend on whether you dive in a pool, confined water or open water dive site.
All required learning materials are available online for the pre-poll session.
Cost: $78 Reactivate Dive Theory Online + In-water Component $100 (using your own gear) *OR* $135 (with our gear)
*Open Water check out dives may be required and are in addition to this class and pool component*
To enroll in the PADI Re-activate, you must be 10 years or older with a previous PADI Open Water Diver Certification or higher. A simple Medical form must also be completed to ensure your safety while diving. Some simple paperwork will be required, and you’ll need to ensure you own appropriate fins, mask and snorkel.
Now that you are back in the water, why not try out a few other adventure dives such as Night Diving or Drift Diving or Deep Diving. These are all dives that accumulate toward your Advanced Open Water Certification. Keep the momentum going and see what wonders await you under the surface.
