Dust off our Diving Abilities with PADI® Refresher Course!
2-6 hours | Theory and Pool session | Option: 2 Open Water Dives
If your last dive was too long ago, you must refamiliarize yourself with all the scuba
diving protocols and safety procedures. A refresher course is all it takes.
Do I need a PADI scuba refresher course?
Some dive schools suggest a refresher if you have not dived within six months,
especially if you have less than 20-lifetime dives. If you have an extensive diving log,
you may not need to consider a refresher unless it has been more than a year since
your last dive.
When was the last time you breathed underwater?
If the answer is "too long ago", you might want to consider taking our refresher course. A short review of all the basic scuba diving procedures is all you need to get back
underwater in complete confidence.
What to Expect from the PADI refresher diving course?
During this brief pool training, our PADI instructor will reintroduce you to all the basic
diving notions and safety instructions you need to be familiar with when diving. You will
feel confident about your next scuba diving adventure in no time.
Sharpen up your skills, and let's go diving!
After about 1.5 hours of the session and reviewing your skills, some dive theories, and
equipment setup, you will be ready to hop on the boat for a two-tank dive.

IMPORTANT! -Flying after Diving
When planning your diving trip and your journey toward your destinations, always remember that you must not fly directly after scuba diving. It accentuates the risk of having decompression sickness.
The PADI guidelines are to NOT FLY during a 12 hours interval after a single dive and 18 hours after multiple dives. As often when it comes to scuba diving, take a conservative approach to safety, and whenever possible, avoid flying the next 24 hours after a dive.
If you intend to do multiple dives on different days during your trip, consider buying your own dive computer, as it will calculate the optimal time to fly based on your diving history.
Even more than other outdoor sports, diving is weather- and sea-dependent. Be aware that some sites might be inaccessible on certain days and that diving trips might be canceled due to dangerous conditions.
Luckily, Thailand has a fantastic climate almost all year round and this happens very rarely.
