What You’ll See & Do

This is the perfect opportunity to review any scuba skills you may have forgotten in the presence of a PADI-certified expert. The course is suitable for any certified diver who needs a refresher, a pre-travel update, a pre-assessment for a continuing education course, or an upgrade from junior diver.

The Scuba Refresher Course is also great for non-certified divers who are referred to complete training or PADI Scuba Divers who are going on to Open Water Diver certification.

Complete a water session where you’ll practice setting up dive gear, make ascents and descents, and review any scuba skills you feel you need guidance with.

Answers to Your Questions

Unfortunately not, this course is designed as a refresher for certified divers. If you want to try diving for the first time, check out our Discover Diving excursion or enroll on the Open Water Diving Certification program.

Water temperature in Puerto Rico ranges from 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months (December-March) to 84 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer months. Most divers get cold in the winter months and a wetsuit is recommended. At other times of the year, wetsuits are good for abrasion protection. Wetsuits are available for rental for an additional fee, check out our rental rates.

The temperate waters of Puerto Rico are home to many species of fish of all sizes. Some we see every day are parrotfish, butterflyfish, blue tangs, sergeant majors, angelfish, squirrelfish. In fact, look at a fish ID guide for the Caribbean and we see those same characters every day. Ahhh… life in paradise.

The minimum age for scuba certification is 10 years.
