Introduction

A scuba diving license lasts for life, however, unlike those fortunate enough to be working here at New Way Diving, most people don’t dive regularly.

The Check Dive & PADI Reactivate program is designed to help ease people back into the water. The check dive is for divers that have had a period of inactivity for 6 months to 1 year, while the Reactivate is recommended for anyone that has not been diving for a period of 1 year or more, and includes 2 dives.

The Check Dive is a simple skill review conducted at the beginning of any dive that you would like to enrol in. It is conducted on the Buoy Line prior to descent to make sure you are comfortable before progressing deeper.

The Reactivate program is more in depth, and takes place during an afternoon session during which you will rehearse some dive theory, review the basic diving skills in shallow water before progressing into a dive, and enjoy 2 dives with any necessary cues from your Divemaster, such as indications to perfect your buoyancy.

New Way Diving offer a maximum group size of 4 students to 1 of our experienced divemasters, assuring that each student receives ample attention, allowing them to qualify as a more than competent diver while have great, safe fun! If smaller instruction is desired, please request on the email and we are happy to arrange!

The Reactivate Schedule

The PADI Reactivate is designed to be flexible, and we offer it as such. However, in our 20+ years of experience we have found the below to be the most suitable, and how we usually run it:

Day 1 11:00 – 11:30 Complete paperwork & review core information with Divemaster
11:45 – 16:30 Shallow Water Skills Review & 2 dives

What’s next?

This scuba review session is designed for people to get comfortable before progressing with their diving. Once completed you may decide to start one of our many course, such as the Advanced Open Water Course, or try a specialty, such as Enriched Air Nitrox, or else, you can continue diving with us as and enjoying the multitude of beautiful Koh Tao Dive Sites that we are happy to dive daily!
