Advanced Adventure Open Water Scuba Diver
Dive to deeper depths and explore more of your ocean and lakes.
The Advanced Adventure Open Water Scuba Diver cert is an extension on top of getting your initial Open Water Scuba Diver cert and aids in educating you how to deal with the physiological effects of deeper diving. This in-water, performance based programme includes two “core” dives – a deep dive and an underwater navigation dive –and three different elective Adventure Dives that appeal to you including:
Boat, Underwater Naturalist, Search & Recovery, Wreck, Dive Fish ID, Peak Performance Buoyancy dives.
Who can take this course?
Open Water Divers form 12 years and up are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with our Instructors.
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.
All in all the Advanced Open Water Diver cert is the last prerequisite you will need before you can start specialising in any area of diving that you want!
