Refresher Courses

If you have not been diving in a while its a good idea to refresh your skills prior to diving, we therefore offer two options for certified divers who wish to practice some skills prior to diving:

A Scuba Shack Get Wet

If its just been less than a year, this simple refresher is a great option.  It is completed at 8:00 am on the day of your dive and consists of a very basic overview of equipment and skills like mask clearance, alternate airsource, regulator recover, reading your pressure gauge and BCD inflation and deflation.  It takes about 25-40 Min’s and is completed prior to the dive.

Minimum Age: 10
Number of Dives: Nil
Approximate Time: 25-40 mins
Prerequisites: Certified Open Water Diver
Price per person:  ​50.00 USD

PADI ReActivate

The PADI ReActivate program is perfect if you have not been diving in a while and want a fun way to refresh your skills and ​check your buoyancy!

If you are a PADI certified diver, you can sign up for PADI ReActivate here. You’ll need to have a credit card ready because you’ll pay PADI a fee of $61.00 USD plus tax (this includes the new ReActivated certification card that you’ll receive after your training with Dive Friends). It takes about 45 minutes to an hour and can be completed while online with either a tablet, mobile or lap top computer. If you don’t have time to do this before your vacation, no worries, just lay on your beach chair and complete it on your tablet.  ​After the academic portion is complete, just contact us to arrange to do your in-water skill review. The cost ​for this and a shallow guided dive​ is 200.00 USD per person.​
