FREE personal regulator mouthpiece for you to keep for all PADI course students.
Join us for a PADI ReActivate course and refresh your PADI certification on the stunning island of Waiheke! The ReActivate course is run on demand, so please get in touch and we'll do our best to accomodate you!
Sometimes life gets in the way of diving. It's hard to believe, we know, but it does happen! The PADI ReActivate refresher is the ideal way to get yourself back in the water if it's been a while since your course, since the last time you dived or you're just feeling a little nervous.
- Small groups - no more than 2 students to 1 Instructor on refresher courses so you get more Instructor time for the best learning environment and more time exploring during your dive!
- No hidden costs - Your Hire Gear, PADI materials, new certification card and registration are included in the course price, so no surprise charges.
- Full PADI e-learning - You complete your theory from home, at a pace that suits you. But don't worry, we know how important asking questions are so your course includes additional theory revision with your Instructor.
- Top quality gear - Brand new Scubapro dive equipment for you to use throughout your course for your comfort and safety. Alternatively you're welcome to use your own gear!
The PADI ReActivate consists of some theory which you'll complete via e-learning before your course, a revision session with your instructor and then we'll go for a dive! There are some specific skills that we need to complete, but the rest of the time in the water is free for you and your Instructor to decide what needs working on. The course takes roughly half a day, but don't worry - we're not going to rush you through!
If you have a buddy that's booked on too then awesome! If not you'll be buddied up with another course mate for the duration of the course.
We hope you'll choose us to get your PADI refreshed! If you have any questions or specific requirements just let us know and we'll happily answer them all for you.
Why explore with us?
We believe that you deserve to learn in the best way possible. That's why we only teach in small groups - the maximum you'll find is 2 students to 1 instructor for the ReActivate program. This means that you get more Instructor time and more time in the water to practice your skills exploring the underwater world with less time waiting around for others to do their thing.
We also believe that your learning experience should be as fun and accessible as possible. That's why you'll find our courses have the FULL PADI e-learning as standard, meaning you get to cover the theory at your own pace before the course starts. But, don't worry - we know that Instructor time is essential to your learning which is exactly why we build in theory revision sessions too, so you can ask us anything you like in person! Best of both worlds!
We're proud to work with Scubapro, one of the worlds top gear brands, who keep us fully stocked with their gear! So with us you get small groups, quality Instruction, full e-learning, no hidden costs and top brand name equipment.
Simply book online, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with some specific info, such as meeting times and locations.
You'll need to let us know some of your sizes so that we can allocate hire gear and complete the appropriate medical and liability release forms.
You must have checked through the medical form and obtained medical clearance (only required if you need to answer "yes" to one or more of the questions) before your activity starts, or else you won't be able to take part. Click here to download the PADI Medical Form.
Also, while we can supply materials in a variety of languages, the course is taught in English so a good level of spoken English is also required.
Please note that for the PADI ReActivate courses our minimum age is 14 and we need in person, signed paperwork from a parent or guardian if under 18. We can arrange, on request, courses for younger divers, but as these are at a reduced ratio please be aware there may be an additional cost.
