Refresh your PADI Open Water skills.



Haven’t been diving lately and need a quick refresher? The PADI ReActivate program is a perfect way to update your skills before you jump back into the water. Whether you need simple reminders or want to review all of the basics, ReActivate is a personalized course to get you up-to-speed. It’s quick and easy, and a great way to prepare for your next PADI course or a dive vacation.

** Your PADI certification does not expire. For the safety of our guests and our crew, a PADI ReActivate course is mandatory if you haven’t logged a dive in over 2 years.  Proof of last dive is required.

“I've wanted to do this for years and it was as amazing as I had hoped. We were in the water for 45-60 minutes, with mantas right beneath us nearly the whole time, gracefully looping and over and over, often coming within a foot (or closer!)”
