A refreshing dive is designated to divers who didn't dive for over 6 months and divers who feel the need to refresh their basic diving abilities, when in the end of it, with an extra payment of 60 Shekels you can keep your equipment all day long.
A refreshing diving is required by the law of recreational dive in Israel and its goal is to refresh your diving abilities after some time that you didn't dive. The refreshing dive lasts around 2 hours and concentrates in it the main topics of the theory and of the underwater exercises. By doing that, you and the instructor make sure that you are able to dive and ready to go to the water. During the dive the instructor will go over the buoyancy and the use of a diving computer. The refreshing dive is not a guided dive where you visit a diving site. The refreshing dive concentrates mainly on important diving abilities and therefore you cannot combine a tour around the sites.
