Refresher & Re-Activation Dive

Dive Kauai’s Refresher & ReActivate program is the perfect way to help you get your gills back if it’s been more than 1 year since your last dive or you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, Dive Kauaʻi’s Refresher & ReActivate is personalized for you and your skill level.  It’s quick, easy and a good way to prepare for your next adventure dive with Dive Kauai! This 2 tank dive in the ocean allows you to refresh your skills while enjoying the abundant marine life conducted at the shore dive site in the open ocean.

Dive Kauai’s professional PADI Instructors will cover the 5 skills deemed necessary for all certified divers to be proficient at. They will go over all of the gear and how it works as well as a detailed safety briefing to help remind you of the most important protocols when diving.  Once you get in the water the first 10-15 minutes of the first dive will be practicing these necessary skills.  Once you’ve successfully completed the skills it’s onto the dives!

The Refresher and ReActivate dives are exactly the same.  The only difference with the ReActivate is it includes a little more in depth knowledge reviews ONLINE and after the course you will receive a NEW certification card stating that you were “ReActivated” in this year.

Any certified diver who wants a refresher with a new certification card and pre-travel update should enroll in their ReActivate Course.  Dive shops appreciate seeing a more recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in!
