You need to be a certified diver to participate in this course, or you need to have a referral form.
Are you a certified scuba diver but you haven't dived for a while? You might have forgotten some of the important aspects of scuba diving. Don’t worry, we are here to help. The PADI Refresher Course has been especially designed with you in mind.
With this refresher we will have you back in tip-top shape in no time and soon you’ll be ready to get back into the water with confidence.
This course covers all the essentials to get you back in the saddle so to speak, such as the theory that you would have learned in your Open Water Course as well as a practical pool dive.
We meet at the Into the Blue Scuba Dive Centre in Cape Town at 09h15. Participants can expect to be finished by around 4pm.
We run this course 7 days a week from our Cape Town Scuba Dive Centre.
If there are any other skills that you would like to refresh, we would be glad to assist you.
The first thing we do is to have a quick look at your theory again. This is mostly done in the form of a quiz. There is also time for questions and answers before we actually go scuba diving!
Once we are finished with your theory, we get into the swimming pool. Here we go through the same skills that you did for your Open Water. You will be surprised how easily it all comes back to you! Safety is key in scuba diving, so we will run through all the relevant gear checks poolside.
If there is any particular skill that you feel you would like some extra help with, we would be happy to spend as much time as you need on this skill.
Back to the real deal – diving in the ocean! This portion of the day is optional, but is the most fun part for most of our refresher students. You now have the option to choose one of our many fun dives to try out your newly practised skills. This could take the form of a nature, seal, wreck or shark dive (excludes Great White Shark cage diving) around Cape Town.
