Has it been a while since you’ve been scuba diving? Do you feel like your scuba skills and knowledge are a bit rusty? The Refresher is just the what you need. It reacquaints you with diving so that you're back to feeling comfortable in the underwater world in less than a day.
This is particularly useful in Queensland, where local legislation requires divers need to complete a diving refresher if they have been out of the water for some time - pertaining to their experience (logbook as proof).
Here with Go Dive, to accommodate the state legislation, to dive with us you do need to show proof of recent diving relevent to your experience level. If you fall outside these timelines, you would need to participate in a refresher program prior to booking on our regular dive days/trips.
You need to complete a refresher if you fall into the categories below:

After the dive is complete, you have the second dive to get the rest f the kinks out, and enjoy the marine life!
