PADI Scuba Refresher

The Scuba Refresher course is just the thing for getting back in the water after being away from diving for a while. If you have not been diving in the past 6 months, most tropical dive operators will insist that you take a refresher and miss a day of diving before getting started - at your own expense, of course. So, if you are not planning to take a refresher when you get there, plan to take one before you go...and bring your log book so we can record proof of your refresher course and sign you off.

Also, in addition to the necessary in-water skill review offered in the SEALS Scuba Refresher course, you may also want to go through the PADI online ReActivate academic review and card replacement (optional, but recommended). Details.

You will review equipment use, revisit certain underwater skills, and have an opportunity to ask questions. If you have your own currently serviced scuba equipment or your own mask, snorkel, and fins, we encourage you to use them so you can refamiliarize yourself with your gear and make sure it works properly.

  • Equipment is NOT included in the cost of tuition.
  • Required personal equipment: mask, snorkel, fins.
  • All other scuba gear will be rented for a $25 weekend rate. Standard rental rates apply for late returns.
  • You will need to pick up your rental gear on the Friday or Saturday before your class and return rental gear on the Monday after class.
