Diver Freshness

  • If it has been 12 months of surface interval since your last dive, but not longer than 24 months a 'Pool Self-Check' with your dive buddy is required. We also recommend signing up for  a 1-tank  shallow reef dives for your first boat dive trip with Ocean Frontiers. 
  • If you haven't been diving within the last 4 years a 'Pool Self-Check' and a supervised Orientation dive is required prior to participating on any other boat diving trip for certified divers. If your last dive was 4-9 years ago you will need to complete a full refresher class. Scuba divers with 10 more more years of inactivity will need to complete a Full PADI certification class.


  • 12-24 months since last dive = Pool Self-Check
  • 2-4 Years since last dive, Option 1 = Pool Self-Check + Orientation 1-Tank Dive 
  • 2-4 Years since last dive, Option 2 = Pool Self-Check + Private Guide for your first dives
  • 4-9 Years since last dive = Full Refresher Class for PADI Re-Activate
  • 10+ years since last dive = Re-Certification

ALL scuba divers are recommended to conduct a 'Pool Self-Check' before diving, even if it has only been a few months since your last dive.
If it has been 12-24 months since your last dive, we require a 'Pool Self-Check'. 
For added comfort, consider adding a 'Private Guide' to your boat dives (for an additional cost) and you'll have your own personal Divemaster for your safety and to make sure you see the best of each dive site.
