Scuba Refresher

with Hydronauts

DEFY GRAVITY

If you haven’t dived in 12 or more months, have forgotten a few diving practices, or just need a reminder on how to properly set up your equipment, we recommend you do a Scuba Refresher.

One of our instructors will do a short workshop of the vital scuba academic principals with you before reviewing equipment set up. You’ll then spend some time in our purpose-built training pool. 

Here at Hydronauts, we tailor your Scuba Refresher to what you do and don’t remember while confirming your safety protocols are well practiced. Our Refresher takes about 2-3 hours and is best completed the day you arrive on the island or the day before you’d like to go diving on the boat trips with us. 

We encourage everyone to dive as safely as possible and extend a 10% discount on fun dives to you after you complete a Scuba Refresher with us.
