Refresher, Scuba Review, Reactivate. Have you been out of the water for a while? Never been diving in the Med? Always had somebody to get your equipment ready for you? Did you finish your course a while ago and did not get to dive since? If you have not been in the water for a year or longer, you can choose any of the options below.
Whatever the reason may be, no matter how rusty you feel – you can always get back into the water sound and safe – while having fun.
At S´Algar Diving, we offer you two practical types of Refresher-Sessions (pool only or a bay dive) as well as the PADI ReActivate Programm, which includes an online theory session, adapted to your needs. Depending on how long it has been since your last dive, or whichever you prefer, we´ll get you back into the water, so you can enjoy your dive.
Refresher | Let’s get you back in the water
Short Pool Refresher
Just prior to your scheduled boat dive (approx. 45 minutes).
You will equip with the help of our Instructor or Divemaster, ask any questions you may have, jump in the pool, refresh your skills underwater, check out your own equipment or get familiar with the rented gear. This 30 minutes refresher is aimed at fairly confident divers, who have not been diving for a year or two and just would like to hop in the pool prior to joining the rest of the divers on the boat for a group dive with the guide.
Starting off just like the Pool Refresher, but instead of joining a group dive off the boat, you´ll continue to enjoy your Instructors or Divemasters undivided attention as you follow up the pool session with a Private Bay Dive, just in front of the dive centre. On this shore dive, you can pick your Instructors brains a little bit more, and have more time to feel entirely comfortable in your neoprene again. Great way to get back into diving after 2 years – or 20. Duration: 1.5 hours with your private Instructor or Divemaster.
Our bay is just in front of the dive centre and offers more then one should expect. At a max depth of 7m, on the inside of the protective barrier, you can enjoy a safe environment, as the bay is protected from any boat traffic from May until the end of October. Due to this measure, Salgar Bay is often used by fish-parents as a daycare centre for their young ones.
The Pool and Bay Refresher Sessions don’t contain any formal academic lessons, other than the conversation you will have with your instructor, where you can ask any questions you like and where the instructor will pick up on any uncertainties you may have and talk you through it. No refresher is the same and each diver will have his/her own requirements.
PADI ReActivate Option | PADI Scuba Review
If you would like to brush up on your dive theory, you can do so with PADI´s own ReActive Program.
The PADI ReActivate program is fully personalised and prescriptive, meaning you’ll only have to cover the areas where your skills and knowledge need refreshing. You’ll be able to review important concepts on your computer (ReActivate Online) or mobile and tablet devices (ReActivate Touch) and work through topics at your own pace.
You’ll interact virtually with dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials, and problem management.
After your online ReActivate sessions, you then can choose to follow up with either the Pool Refresher or the Bay Dive with one of our Instructors.
Once you’ve completed both the knowledge and in-water skill refreshers, you’ll even get a replacement certification card with your ReActivate date.
