The purpose of the Advanced Open Water course is to improve your diving knowledge by exposing you to a variety of different scuba diving scenarios and activities from identifying fish, invertebrates and plants, to navigation, buoyancy workshops, drift dives and night diving to name but a few. By choosing to train with us you benefit from:
Over 25 different dive sites offering walls, pinnacles, coral gardens and muck sites with a variety of topography and conditions PLUS having them stocked year round with some of the most diverse and interesting creatures on the planet.
Our small often one-to-one training groups mean that your instructor time is great and someone is always on hand to help answer questions and get you properly immersed in diving.
By combining our training dives with normal fun dives you can practice your newly learnt skills an continue building your confidence.
Our safety conscious and relaxed approach to training means that you never feel rushed or being pushed through to simply pass – we want you to excel!
The Advanced Open Water course introduces you to more aspects of diving by getting you to pick five Adventure Dives which interest you. An Adventure Dive is actually the first part of what is known as a Specialty, each of which is a standalone course which can be completed for recognition in that particular area. Check this page for the full list of PADI Adventure Dives you can choose from.
To complete the Advanced Open Water diver Course you simply complete a short chapter in the Adventures in Diving manual for each of the 5 Adventure Dives you will do, and then you complete the 5 dives with your instructor. There are two mandatory Adventure Dives, namely Deep Diver and Underwater Navigation as they both contain key skills which you will always rely on in your diving career. For the remaining three Adventure Dives, we recommend a choice of the following:
AWARE Fish Identification to improve your knowledge of our fishy friends and improve your skills in identifying what you see when diving
Drift Diver – get comfortable in a current and find out that they can be your friend if the dive is planned properly! Perfect for building confidence (and having a lot of fun)
Night Diver – take the plunge after dark and discover the mind-blowing inhabitants of Bangka’s nighttime waters!
Peak Performance Buoyancy – we uncover the secrets of perfecting your buoyancy whilst simultaneously reducing the weight you carry and reducing your air consumption
Underwater Naturalist – learn about underwater ecosystems including the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates as well as understanding the intertwined lives of the creatures under the sea
After finishing your five dives – congratulations! – you are and Advanced Open Water Diver, qualified to dive up to 30 metres with a buddy. If you were particularly taken with what you learned on your Adventure Dives bear in mind that you can continue to learn by completing the relevant Specialty. Your Adventure Dive counts towards a Specialty – don’t let it go to waste!
