PADI REFRESHER SUBA DIVING COURSE CAPE TOWN - INTRODUCTION

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.

PADI REFRESHER SUBA DIVING COURSE OUTLINE

Schedule

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.

Theory

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!

Pool dive

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.

Optional Cape Town Ocean dive

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.

PADI REFRESHER SUBA DIVING COURSE CAPE TOWN - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. Do I need to do a refresher?
    If you haven’t dived for about 6 months, or you feel a bit rusty, we recommend that you do a refresher course. It will greatly enhance your experience once you then proceed to dive in the ocean afterwards, and you will feel a lot more comfortable under water. As with everything with diving, if you feel unsure, err on the safe side.

  2. What do I need to bring with?
    You need to bring with a towel, your swimming clothes, sun cream and a snack to eat.

  3. Can I do a refresher course if I did a PADI Discover Scuba Experience?
    You cannot do a refresher course if you only did a PADI Discover Scuba Experience. We recommend that you either do another PADI Discover Scuba Experience if you are limited in time, or that you do a PADI Open Water Course and become a certified diver.

I booked my Padi Open Water course through Into the Blue and was impressed from start to finish...

Easy booking, friendly service and great location. Staff make you feel right at home from the word go, but are professional and always make you feel safe. Small groups helped to get to know people and make new friends from across the globe. Will be back shortly for fun dives and more courses.

Had the best diving experience with Into the Blue, first...

dive was a ship wreck followed by doing yoga moves with the seals. Would highly recommend diving with these guys, very professional and fun! I sadly lost my go pro whilst diving with the seals but I'll always have the memories!
