So you love to dive but with life, family, work and a myriad of reasons  have kept you out of the water.


Now that it has been a while or even a few years and life has calmed down, you are itching to get back into the water.

The SDI Inactive Diver/Refresher Program is designed to update and review the knowledge and skill level of an inactive diver.


This program can also be used as a catalyst for continuing education programs.


How Do I Begin The PROGRAM?


To participation the Inactive Diver/Refresher Program is fairly simple.


The academic section is completed via eLearning at home, on your own computer/tablet at your own pace. This way you get to start and stop as life, family, work dictates.

Once you complete the eLearning section you simply make and appointment for a easy Review Session where we go over the eLearning with you. Answer any questions and ensure a complete understanding of the basics.

During the Review Session will size you with the equipment you will need for you in-water dives. You will reacquaint yourself with the equipment and assemble, prepare and understand the scuba diving equipment in the safety and comfort of the Review Session well before you enter the water. 

We then schedule your 2 in-water days. 


The requirements for the Inactive Diver/Refresher Program  are very straight forward.

Have proof of an Open Water Certification or a Junior Open Water Certification from a recognized dive

training organization.

You must be a minimum of 10 years old. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health.

Your instructor will refresh your knowledge about dive equipment, responsible diving practices and the environment.


Come on and dive in…a lifetime of fun, adventure, memories, experiences, and new friends awaits you!
