Refresh your Skills with a Scuba Review on Koh Tao
If you have not been diving for a while and have forgotten what you need to do, a Scuba Review is a sensible choice to refresh and re-establish your confidence breathing from scuba equipment underwater.
It may be that you completed your Open Water course years ago or have not been diving for quite a while and want a quick reminder of the important essentials.
If you have not been diving for a long time and jump straight in, then there is a good chance you will waste the whole dive trying to remember what to do, in addition to there being an increased risk to your safety.
Book a Scuba Review (refresher) on Koh Tao
A Scuba review can be completed in a morning or an afternoon within 1-2 hours and will enable you to join the afternoon or next morning dive boat to go fun diving.
If you join the dive boat after completing a scuba review, you will know exactly what to do and be confident and excited about the planned dives.
A scuba review is a great way to calm the nerves, re-focus, go diving and enjoy them with a real positive attitude.
Refresh your Diving Knowledge with a Scuba Review
An important part of the scuba review is to refresh your diving knowledge, including dive theory, the effects of pressure underwater affecting your air spaces, best buddy practices, emergency procedures and underwater communication.
This is usually followed by a refresh of diving equipment, kit assembly, pre-dive safety checks and water entry methods.
Your scuba review is best taken in a safe confined water environment or a swimming pool, so you can focus on the skills refresh and not be distracted by any adverse open water conditions.
