Scuba Refresher

Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? The ReActivate™ program is the perfect way to update your dive skills and knowledge from the PADI Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the water. There is a small fee payable to PADI for Reactivate eLearning.

What should we do first?

1. First complete PADI’s super on-line PADI Reactivate – linked below (takes about 90 minutes). Available in most languages!


2. Then book some diving with us in Port Douglas or elsewhere. We can give you a private pool session before your reef trip or complete some skills on your first reef dive.



1. On-Line practical theory (PADI ReActivate)

Update your dive knowledge and safety reminders with a quick and practical scuba refresher from the PADI Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the water with Blue Dive or your local dive centre.


Whether you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, ReActivate is personalized for you: You conveniently review practical scenarios and scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer.


It’s quick and easy, and a great way to prepare you again for open water whether here in Port Douglas or elsewhere.


The best part is, divers who complete both the knowledge and inwater skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.


Any certified diver (whichever agency) who wants a refresher or pre-travel update should ReActivate. Dive shops appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in.


Using ReActivate eLearning (for tablets or mobile devices) or ReActivate Online (for your personal computer), you’ll immerse yourself in dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management. Move through ReActivate at your own pace and delve deeper into topics when you need or want to.


If you are a  non-PADI diver then contact us rather than follow the link below. And we’ll take the small payment and send you the Reactivate link.


PADI divers please follow the instructions below. You’ll need to choose your country of origin, add a few details, including the language you want, and pay PADI a small fee…
