I dived with Into the blue last week, and despite having an early meeting time was greeted by the staff with instant smiles and friendliness. Within 15 minutes the blond lady at reception had our whole groups paperwork sorted, gear packed, and introductions given.
There was a groupf of about 7 of us, and we all got to know eachother and the rest of the staff very well throughout the day. Everyone of the staff was friendly and happy to lend a helping hand, and they were very thorough and professional throughout the day.
The dive conditions didn't end up being so good, but the skipper GP was wise enough to call off the second dive for safety and we were sorted out back at the shop with rescheduling and refunds.
Very well done, and I would highly recommend for any divers visiting Cape town. I will be back to dive with Into the blue again!!!
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.
Quick overview of the PADI Refresher Scuba Diving Course in Cape Town
- Duration: about 4 hours
- Review theory and then scuba dive in the pool
- Bring your swimsuit, sunscreen, towel and a snack.
- You must be a certified diver to do this course
PADI REFRESHER SUBA DIVING COURSE OUTLINE
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.
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
- 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.
- What do I need to bring with?
You need to bring with a towel, your swimming clothes, sun cream and a snack to eat.
- 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.
