React Right

Hawaiian Diving Adventures

Boat Diving: The ocean is full of incredible dive sites that are too far to enter from the shore. Diving from a boat requires additional safety considerations:

  • Avoiding trips, slips, and falls
  • Keeping your personal gear organized and secure
  • Properly entering and exiting the water
  • Required equipment and other important things to keep in mind
In this course, you will also learn about:
  • different types of boats commonly used for diving
  • safety procedures and items that should be onboard
  • how to discuss these procedures to keep all divers and crew safe
  • proper boat etiquette so you won’t be “that guy” in everyone’s stories
This specialty course provides the required skills and knowledge to help you safely dive from boats. It also allows you to gain the most from your boat diving trips.

How It Works

This course starts with e-Learning. You learn about first aid, CPR, AED, and O2 administration. Your instructor then conducts the practical exercises where you practice saving the life of our dummy.


Plan to spend some time on e-Learning, usually 6-8 hours, and take the final exam online. We can complete the practical portion in one day. Since this is not a diving course we can schedule it for evenings or anytime that fits your schedule.

What to Bring

We recommend that all React Right students have their own pocket mask, although we do have spares for training. Also, we suggest bringing pencils and paper for note-taking and a bottle of water.

Special Considerations

React Right Certification

Upon completion of all academic, practical requirements, and the final exam, your instructor issues the React Right certification card. This is a prerequisite for Master Diver and all professional programs. Refresh your React Right certifications every 24 months.
