Dive back into the water with a PADI Professional to review your inwater scuba skills (optional). We provide all gear with exception of your personal gear (mask, snorkel, fins, and fin booties). You just show up with your personal gear and have fun! Our instructor will go over some key skills with you and then you will have the rest of the time to work on any skills you want to work on. The average session takes about two hours.

Have your certification through another agency other than PADI? No worries! We can still complete a refresher course for you. You will be issued an online code through PADI for the academic "Tune-up" portion and then you will attend a pool session to work on the skills. At the end, the instructor will sign your log book showing you completed a refresher.

Getting Started is as Easy as 1-2-3:
