A refresher dive, also known as a scuba review or dive tune-up, is a diving program designed for certified divers who haven’t engaged in diving for an extended period, typically six months or more. This program aims to help divers regain their confidence, skills, and knowledge in a controlled and supervised environment before undertaking more challenging or advanced dives.
During a refresher dive, divers receive a comprehensive briefing from a certified dive instructor or dive guide, covering essential dive theory, safety procedures, equipment setup, and underwater communication. Participants have the opportunity to review skills such as mask clearing, regulator recovery, buoyancy control, and emergency procedures in a confined aquatic environment, such as a pool or shallow bay. This allows divers to reacquaint themselves with these fundamental skills and build confidence in their abilities.
