Review, Refresh and ReActivate!
Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? Or maybe you’re getting ready for a cool vacation to the islands and want to brush up before the big trip. Regardless of your need our program is the perfect way to update your dive skills and knowledge before your next dive.
The best part is divers who complete both the (OPTIONAL) PADI ReActivate Online or Touch and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.
IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE YOU BEGIN: Your PADI certification does not expire!
FIRST – you can begin by refreshing your knowledge of diving using the (OPTIONAL) ReActivate Touch (for tablets or mobile devices) or ReActivate Online (for your personal computer). During your online training you’ll immerse yourself in dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management. The independence of PADI ReActivate Touch or Online allows you to move at your own pace and delve deeper into various topics at your leisure.
Note: There is a separate $59.95 fee for the (optional) PADI ReActivate Touch or Online
SECOND – Water Skills Review. During the in-water session our A-1 Professional will help you regain comfort and confidence in scuba diving. You’ll practice general dive skills such as equalization, mask skills, buoyancy control, weight system adjustment, using an alternate air source and anything else you would like to review, to help restore your mastery and build self-assurance for your upcoming adventure.
Note: There is a separate fee for the in-water aquarium dive
