ReActivate - Scuba Refresher

Sea Session: £95

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. Whether you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, ReActivate is personalised for you: You conveniently review scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer, then go diving with a PADI Professional. It’s quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next PADI course or get ready for a diving holiday. The best part is, divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.


Any PADI certified diver 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.


Your PADI certification does not expire.  Participation in PADI ReActivate is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your foundational scuba safety knowledge and skills if you haven’t been diving in a while. Divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill 

refresher receive a replacement certification card with a “ReActivated thru” date on it.

What Will I Learn? Using ReActivate Touch (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. In the water, your PADI Professional will help you regain comfort and confidence in scuba diving. You’ll practice a few safety-related skills and then go over anything you specifically want to review.

What’s Included? Red Duck will provide all the scuba equipment you’ll be using including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device, dive gauges and a tank. If you are diving in the sea, an 8mm semi-dry suit will be provided to maximise your enjoyment and comfort.


You will need to bring your swimming costume/shorts, a towel and warm clothes for after. Red Duck will provide you with a hot drink and a snack post sea dive and underwater photos of your experience at no extra cost.

How Do I Book? Call or email Red Duck Diving today to get ReActivate Touch or ReActivate Online and start working through the scenarios. Or, download the PADI App to your tablet or mobile device (if you haven’t already) and purchase ReActivate to get started immediately. Then, schedule your ReActivate water skills session.


You need to complete a medical statement form and PADI liability release form. When you book your ReActivate dive, Red Duck will email these to you. If you answer yes to any of the medical conditions on the medical statement, you will be referred to your doctor for written confirmation you are fit to dive.


What’s Next? Once you have completed your PADI ReActivate session, you’ll want to continue your exploration of the underwater world. Keep diving!

If you want to learn more about diving in a new area or in different dive conditions, ask about completing a Discover Local Diving experience at a local dive site.
