Our quick Scuba Review is an inexpensive way for experienced divers to refresh their skills. This program is for divers who have logged over 25 dives but have not been in the water and over 2 years.

This is an excellent option to get you back in the water refreshed and ready for our outer reef boat dive adventures.

Most dive operations in the world require that divers take a refresher course if it has been over one year since their last dive. This program will satisfy those requirements. The duration of this program is approximately three hours and is conducted off the beach.

The course is performance-based so we do not like to rush. We want to make sure everyone is safe and fully understands the skills of the day. So there is a start time but never a set finish time.
