PADI ReActivate

If you haven’t dived for a year or more, then it’s a good idea to ReActivate yourself and freshen up your skills to keep you safe and ensure you get the most out of your dives at home or abroad. However if it's been more than 5 years, we recommend you re-take the Open Water course to get back into diving.


About the Course

The PADI ReActivate is a fast and effective way to get your dive skills back up to scratch before a holiday or taking a course.  During the self-study you can quickly cruise through the topics you remember, and spend a little more time looking further into those you have forgotten or are less familiar with.  The same applies to the in-water session, and once you’ve completed both elements PADI will recertify your highest qualification so you’re good to go.

More info

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.

Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
