Refresh Your Diving Skills

If you haven’t been diving for over a year, Dive Friends Bonaire’s policy is to recommend that you refresh your dive skills and knowledge with a refresher course. If you haven’t been diving in over two years, it’s required. Don’t worry. It’s a fun, easy way to refresh your skills and complete the Bonaire Marine Park orientation and buoyancy check. Your safety is very important to us. Read our article When Do I Need A Refresher? for more information about why we require a refresher course after 2 years of not diving.

For safety reasons, you’ll need to fill in a Medical Statement to ensure that you are fit to dive. If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, you need to have a signed medical statement from a doctor prior to in-water training.

Discover Local Diving on Bonaire

If it’s your first dive in Bonaire, or if it’s been a while since you’ve been diving, our Discover Local Diving on Bonaire is a simple and fun way to refresh your skills and acquaint yourself with independent shore diving on Bonaire! We’ll begin with a short theory review and an explanation of the basics of shore diving on Bonaire. Then we’ll give you the Bonaire Marine Park orientation and a detailed site briefing. After that we will gear up and head into the water. In our confined water area, we will conduct the required Bonaire Marine Park buoyancy check and review a few skills before heading out for a guided dive on our beautiful house reef.

The PADI ReActivate program is a simple and fun way to refresh your skills and complete the Bonaire Marine Park buoyancy check! If you are a PADI certified diver, you can sign up for PADI ReActivate here.

If you don’t have time to do this before your vacation, no worries – we can set you up with a tablet to complete the program here at our dive school. After the academic portion is complete, we’ll take you into the water for a skill review. The cost for the in water portion of the training is $49.00 without a guided dive or $88.00 with a guided dive.
