Scuba Review - Refresh your Skills

Your PADI certification never expires; but if you haven't been diving in a while, it's better to be over-prepared than risk a problem because you forget something important.

This two hour in-water session will refresh the basic skills from your Open Water Diver course. We will guide you through foundational skills and help you regain confidence before your next diving adventure.

If you want to refresh yourself on the academics, check out PADI's ReActivate eLearning course! This academic review will help refresh your knowledge from the initial Open Water Diver course, and even includes a replacement card if taken alongside our in-water Scuba Review.

Advanced Open Water Diver - Grow as a Diver

You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start shortly after earning your  Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Our Advanced Open Water course uses the traditional textbook, so you'll need to stop by the dive store and pick up your copy when you pay for the course. You'll go through at least 5 sections in the book: Deep, Navigation, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Search & Recovery, and Wreck. Over 3 sessions including 2 days of outdoor dives you'll complete an adventure dive for each section, introducing you to safety and procedures for each Adventure Dive.

Our Advanced course is a great way to take the next step and grow your skills as a diver!
