Scuba Review – ReActivate

Get Back into the Water with the PADI ReActivate and Aussie Divers Phuket, Thailand

So you have been out of the water for a while, not much scuba diving? Feeling a little bit nervous about getting back into scuba diving, you think your skills and dive knowledge is a little rusty? The PADI ReActivate is just what you need to get you back into the water. In less that a day it will get you back up to scratch and doing what you love to do …scuba diving. At Aussie Divers Phuket we understand it can be a little bit difficult getting back in the water and we can assure you that we have the time and the patients that will make your return fun and enjoyable and it will have you feeling as though you never left the water.

The Best Part

You will get to go over the skills that you learnt in you original open water course. You will become a better diver and learn some more about the equipment you will use when scuba diving.

What You Learn

Safe diving practices
Dive planning fundamentals
Problem management
Breathing air at depth
Recreational diving and dive tables: basic knowledge
Recreational diving and dive tables: dive planning
After you complete the knowledge assessment, you go through the Confined Water Skills Preview. You review information about each skill, why it’s important, points to remember when performing the skill and a short video clip. Completing this section just before practicing is a great way to refresh your knowledge of how each skill is performed.

The ReActivate course is particularly beneficial if you:

What are the signs and symptoms of decompression sickness?
At 12 meters/ 40 feet a diver runs out of air. Her buddy is more than 60 feet away, what should she do?
