PADI Reactivate !

Update your dive skills and knowledge with a quick scuba refresher from the
PADI Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the water.

Are you certified but haven’t been in the water lately?
Are you looking to refresh your dive skills and knowledge?

If you answered “yes” then this program is for you.

Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? The ReActivate™ program is the perfect way to update your dive skills and knowledge from the PADI Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the water. Whether you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, ReActivate is personalized for you: You conveniently review scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer, then go diving with a PADI Professional. It’s quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next PADI course or get ready for a dive vacation. The best part is, divers who complete both the knowledge and inwater skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.

Any PADI certified diver who wants a refresher or pre-travel update should ReActivate. Dive shops appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in.

*Your PADI certification does not expire. Participation in PADI ReActivate™ is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your foundational scuba safety knowledge and skills if you haven’t been diving in a while. Divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a “ReActivated thru” date on it.

Using ReActivate eLearning (for tablets or mobile devices) or ReActivate Online (for your personal computer), you’ll immerse yourself in dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management. Move through ReActivate at your own pace and delve deeper into topics when you need or want to.

In the water, your PADI Professional will help you regain comfort and confidence in scuba diving. You’ll practice a few safety-related skills and then go over anything you specifically want to review.

Contact us at Wilson Diving to get ReActivate eLearning or ReActivate Online and start working through the scenarios. Then, schedule your ReActivate water skills session.

What will you learn?

The PADI Skin Diver course teaches you about:

  • How to choose, adjust and use skin diving equipment.
  • Basic safety guidelines for being in and around the water.

  • Going on an optional skin dive at a local dive site.

    How can you start learning now?

    Enroll for your course with Wilson Diving, and get started earning your PADI Skin Diver certification. Ask your instructor about the PADI Discover the Underwater World video and companion piece – The Snorkeler’s Field Guide. Although not required for the course, the video has great tips that will come in handy when you hit the water and the field guide covers different underwater environments along with common aquatic life.

    What gear will you use?

    The PADI Skin Diver course teaches you how to use basic snorkeling equipment including a masksnorkelfins, snorkeling vest, exposure protection like a wet suit and dive weights as needed.

Peak Performance Buoyancy

Categories: Tags:

Price: $299


 Start Today !

What is neutral buoyancy?

Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float. It can be a tricky thing.

Divers who have mastered the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover, almost as if by thought.

Night Diver


Price: $319 + Tax


 To be Announced

As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your mask and bite down on your regulator.

A deep breath and you step off the boat – into the underwater night. Although you’ve seen this reef many times before, this time you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.

What You Learn

  • Night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems
  • How to control your buoyancy at night

You’ll learn the tools of the trade, including navigation using natural clues and by following compass headings. During three scuba dives, you will practice:

  • Compass navigation while making at least five turns.
  • Marking or relocating a submerged object or position from the surface.
  • Underwater map making.

Fish ID


$125 + Books


Book Today !

What will you learn?

Once you learn to recognize what types of fish you see, you’ll find it easier to reference the exact species after a scuba dive. For example, a butterfly fish in the Caribbean has a similar shape to a butterfly fish in Southeast Asia, but colors and markings may be wildly different. If you know what fish family it belongs to, you can more easily look up the local name or at least be able to intelligently ask the local scuba instructor what you saw.
During two scuba dives, you will learn:

  • How to identify characteristics of local fish families and species.
  • Fish survey techniques and strategies.
  • About Project AWARE activities that can help protect aquatic life
