Scuba Skills Refresh... Not Dived for a While?
If you have a diving certification and have not dived for a while then we can help you get back into the water with a Refresh.
We realise that many people don't dive very often, but are reasonably confident in the water and can remember most of what they learned during their training, however as time goes by, things do get forgotten and thus we offer a 'light' scuba skills review which can be combined with a day's fun diving on the reef.
Most of the diving around Koh Lanta is easy, with relatively shallow sites, shelter from current, good visibility and usually good weather, this is an ideal place to refresh your knowledge and review some of the basic skills of scuba diving.
Do I Need a Scuba Skills Refresh?
Diving is a very safe activity, however if you have not dived for a while then the risk of problems occuring can increase, especially with buoyancy and mask clearing. We aim to create a safe environment for diving and to do this, we have adopted the following policies regarding skills refresh:
- Did not dive for 9 months or more? you have less than 10 dives? You must take a refresher.
- Did not dive for 1 year or more? you have less than 25 dives? You must take a refresher.
- Did not dive for 2 years or more? you have less than 100 dives? You must take a refresher.
- Did not dive for 3 years or more? You must take a refresher.
Please bring your log book with you when diving with us. If you do not have proof of logged dives then we may insist that you take a refresher course before allowing you to dive with us.

What is a Light Scuba Skills Refresh?
The day before your dives, we will give you a short theory review, and we'll even lend you a PADI Open Water Diver manual to help you. The theory review is done in your own time and if there's anything you don't understand then our instructors will be very happy to help with an explanation.
After reviewing the theory, then it's off to the dive site the following morning for 2 dives. Both before the boat departs in the morning and during your dives we will brief and review underwater skills such as mask clearing, regulator clearing and recovery, help you with your buoyancy, breathing and finning techniques, checking your equipment and anything else you've forgotten!
Full Scuba Review
For those of you who have not been diving for a long time, or those with just a few dives who are lacking confidence, we can offer a Full Scuba Review in a swimming pool or confined water where we review all of the skills learned in your open water training course. This is usually done the day before your first dives from the boat.
