I'm a PADI certified Advanced Diver. However, my first dive in 17 years was last year in Akumal, Mexico. I paid for a "test" session in the pool where they evaluated my skills and deemed me good enough to dive. The test session was a run through of a few "underwater emergency" scenarios (mask replacement, buddy breathing, remove BCD and put it back on, etc...). I was deemed "good to dive" and went on two 50ft dives. They lasted ~50 mins each. I would've done additional dives but I ran out of time.
I'm not looking to go on any real technical dives in West Bay. 40-50 ft dives is good enough.Would it be possible to do something like this in West Bay? Am I going to be required to renew my certification?
