Brush Up Your Skills

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:


Scuba Refresher

This short refresher is $250 USD per person , (dive not included) once the refresher is complete we hope you now feel confident enough to book either a scheduled two tank dive or a private one or two tank dive to use that confidence to enjoy Anguilla's waters.

Not been diving in a while, then this refresher is a great option. It consists of a overview of equipment and skills – like mask clearance, alternate air source use, regulator recovery, reading your pressure gauge, hand signals, BCD inflation and deflation and buoyancy.

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 laptop 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 your in-water skill review. The cost ​for this and a shallow guided dive​.
