Who should take this course?

Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enrol in an Advanced Open Water Diver course.

It is most noteworthy that young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your Instructor.

Maybe you are already an Adventure Diver, hence you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water.

For SSI the make up is slightly different, ask and we will gladly guide you to your next challenge.

What will you learn?

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 even introduction to Nitrox.

You may be able to get college credit for the Advanced Open Water Diver course.
