Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take part – the course is designed so you can go straight into it after your Open Water Diver course.
The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.
You’ll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to underwater navigation and deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet) as well as three more Adventure Dives of your choice.
One reason you’ll love the Advanced Open Water Diver course is that you and your instructor choose from 15 types of Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can try your hand at digital underwater photography, wreck diving, peak performance buoyancy and much more.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver course.
Much of the learning in the Advanced course is practical, but there is ample opportunity to learn from the cumulative knowledge of the Reef Dive Centre professional team in our beautiful purpose built classroom offering panoramic views across the resort and shark bay beyond. The knowledge and skills you learn in the Advanced Open Water Diver course vary with your interest and the adventures you have, but include:
You use all the basic scuba equipment including your underwater compass. Depending on which three adventure dives you pick, you may also try out underwater photography equipment, a dive light, lift bags, a dive flag/float or other specialty gear.
The PADI Adventures in Diving Manual provides information on more than 16 types of specialty diving. You’ll use it as a guidebook to improve your diving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures.
