The 1 Day PADI ReActivate program consists of three parts: a knowledge review and a confined water skills review with open water scuba dive & an afternoon boat dive. The knowledge review segment covers the basic safety information divers learn during their entry-level training. We use the scuba tune-up guidebook or for a complete re-assessment the PADI Open Water Diver course quizzes and exam is used to test a divers knowledge. The confined water skills review allows participants to practice basic scuba skills. With guidance from a PADI professional, divers update and fine-tune their diving ability in a controlled environment, then enjoy an open water dive to our house reef. In the afternoon divers join the boat for an afternoon dive with a PADI Divemaster or Instructor.
Once the PADI ReActivate is complete and you feel comfortable in the water you can join our daily diving program. The PADI ReActivate program is offered at no additional charge for divers on a multiple diving package. This program also offers an opportunity to obtain an environmental orientation to a local dive site from a PADI member while gaining confidence and refreshing dive skills.
