It is pretty much essential that you take the time to invest in the ReActivate programme after a long lay-off. PADI have recently updated this programme to make it easier and more fun to relearn important skills and knowledge that's easily forgotten after a period of six months or more out of the water. It is very often the basics like breathing and buoyancy that go completely out of the window, especially if you dive occasionally with long gaps between dives. A classic example is when you’ve booked an awesome holiday somewhere exotic, and want to ensure you appreciate the diving as much as possible.
To take part in these sessions you must pre book your space to ensure there is availability
The scuba reactivate programs are run on Thursday nights 7.00pm - 8.00pm and if that session is full then it’s 8.00pm till 9.00pm ( divers come 20 mins before these times to set the equipment up etc and have a briefing on the skills we will be practicing in the Pool )
