Been awhile since you've hit the open water? Heading out for a dive vacation? A refresher is a great way to brush up on your skills. If it has been over 12 months since your last dive, a refresher is highly recommended. A lot of resorts will ask to see your c-card and your logbook and may insist on a refresher prior to entering open water.

During a Refresher, you will work with an instructor and review all of your scuba skills including equipment setup, entering/exiting, mask removal & clearing, regulator recovery & clearing, ascending/descending, BCD removal/replacement, buoyancy control, emergency ascent, air sharing. 

If it has been more than 5-8 years since your last dive, a refresher may not be enough, you may want to think about retaking the pool & classroom training (see Pool & Classroom Audit below). Longer than 8 years since your last dive? We definitely recommend retaking the pool and classroom training again.

Please remember, a refresher is only that, a refresher. If we have to "re-teach" you all the skills, that is tough to do in a 1-2 hour pool session.

Important Details

  • Each session depends on allotted pool time and will range from 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
  • Any required rental equipment including tanks, weights, scuba and snorkeling gear must be picked up from the store during regular hours and dropped off after the pool session (please reserve ahead of time if possible)
