If it has been 12 months of surface interval since your last dive, but not longer than 24 months a 'Pool Self-Check' is required. We also recommend signing up for either a 1-tank or 2-tank shallow reef dives for your first boat dive trip with Ocean Frontiers.
If you haven't been diving within the last 4 years a supervised Orientation dive is required prior to participating on any other boat diving trip for certified divers. If your last dive was 4-9 years ago you will need to complete a full refresher class. Scuba divers with 10 more more years of inactivity will need to complete a Full PADI certification class.
- 12-24 months since last dive = 'Pool Self-Check'
- 2-4 Years since last dive = Orientation 1-Tank Dive
- 4-9 Years since last dive = Full Refresher Class
- 10+ years since last dive = Re-Certification
All scuba divers are recommended to conduct a 'Pool Self-Check' before diving, even if it has only been a few months since your last dive. If it has been 12-24 months since your last dive, we recommend taking an orientation dive or shallow dive in addition to the required 'Pool Self-Check'.Has it been a while?
