About the Refresher
The Refresher dive can be a very individual activity depending on your level of prior experience and what skills you are weak on and need more emphasis. If you have not dived for a few years or since you have completed your certification then this enables you to brush up on your practical skills before heading out to sea on your liveaboard dive trip. Our course includes a theory and equipment review, a skills circuit, all under the supervision of a qualified Pro Dive professional.

What depths will I be diving to?

The Great Barrier Reef is not a deep dive destination. Depths in our dive sites range from 10-25 metres (30-80 feet), with the best diving generally occurring between 10 and 15 metres (30-50 feet). This means there are some amazing sites that stay shallow enough for all certified divers to enjoy, regardless of how advanced your diving certifications may be.
