We are divers, we want to go diving…..a lot! Unfortunately life can conspire to stop us diving as often as we would like. If this is you, then you are not alone. Perhaps you couldn’t find buddies to dive with after you qualified or maybe you were a regular diver but work, house moves, changing circumstances found you diving less and less.
At Scuba Blue we can get you back in the water and diving again.
The first thing to do is talk to us. Phone, email, messenger or drop in and we can plan a way back into diving to suit you. You may just need to get in a pool and refresh some skills or perhaps joining the Scuba Blue Club to find new dive buddies is all you need. But for most people the best way forward is the PADI ReActivate programme.
PADI ReActivate is a great way to get back into diving
Besides being a great way to flexibly review your dive knowledge and skills PADI Reactivate also provides you with an internationally recognised card informing dive centres around the world that you are up to date and ready to dive.
You will begin by reviewing your dive knowledge. You can do this online, by using a downloadable app or face to face with a PADI Instructor or Divemaster. Give us a call or drop in to talk about which method would work best for you. Whichever way you choose to review your knowledge we won’t make you go over the stuff you already know and remember. Instead, you will go through some questions to diagnose where you do need to brush up your knowledge and concentrate on those.
We will then go down to the pool, usually on a Tuesday evening, and talk to you about what skills need work. We will definitely review some key safety skills like mask clearing, emergency weight drop, neutral buoyancy and out of air drills, but then we can practice others which you decide you want to revise.
Once you have finished reviewing dive theory and your skills in the pool we will get PADI to reissue your qualification card with “ReActivated on…” embossed on it to show to a dive centre or resort that you have had your knowledge and skills reviewed.
Personalise your ReActivate experience
Great though the PADI ReActivate programme is, it might not be all that you need or want.
- Why not ask to go on an escorted dive in open water? We can take you out to a local dive site, either in freshwater or the sea, and help you tune your skills and gain confidence diving with a Scuba Blue staff member.
- Book onto one of our trips. Talk to us and we can advise you on which would best suit you. You then get to go out and spend time with other keen, local divers as well as having some great dives to add to your log book/
- How about joining our club? You’ll be part of a really friendly bunch who dive regularly locally and further away.
