Advanced Open Water
What Will You Learn?
This course is your next step from Open Water and involve five dives, carried out over a weekend, after which you'll be more experienced and feel more comfortable in the water. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving.
It introduces you to a range of new diving skills and qualifies you to dive to a depth of up to 30 metres. It is the perfect next step after completing your Open Water course or at any time to continue your dive education.
You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.
During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.
Any Open Water or entry level dive qualification.
Knowledge development is based around self-study at home from your manual, allowing you to study in your own time at your own pace.
This is supported by a classroom session or workshop with your Instructor who can answer any questions and explain more about the subjects covered.
