Check Dives

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 Dive Refresher & Check Dive programs are designed to help ease people back into the water.

Our Check Dive is for divers that have had a period of inactivity for 6 months to 1 year, while the Refresher is recommended for anyone that has not been diving for a period of 1 year or more, and includes 2 dives.

During the Check Dive we complete some simple skill reviews at the beginning of any dive that you would like to rehearse, as well as a reminder on equipment assembly and some core theory. It is conducted on the Buoy Line prior to descent to make sure you are comfortable before progressing deeper.

The Refresher program is more in depth, and takes place during an afternoon session during which you will cover 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 divers while have great, safe fun!

If smaller instruction is desired, please request on the email and we are happy to arrange!
