How is it different from the PADI Open Water Diver Course?
During the PADI Open Water Diver Course you learn the critical skills needed for scuba diving during your Knowledge Development, confined water dives and open water dives. During your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, you will complete 5 Adventure Dives which focuses on a particular activity or skill.
What should I expect?
First of all, you should expect to have a lot of fun while completing your Advanced Open Water Course, and expect to become a more skilled and more confident diver.
More specifically, though what should I expect?
Well, for each Adventure Dive, you will be required to complete a theory portion – this can be done at home via PADI eLearning or in a classroom setting. You’ll also need to complete some basic knowledge reviews to ensure you have a sound knowledge of the theory behind each dive.
The Advanced Open Water course is made up of five adventure dives. The Deep Adventure Dive and the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive are compulsory and will give you some essential skills to become a more competent diver. You also get to choose another three Adventure Dives to help build your skill set.
What Adventure Dives should I Choose?
As mentioned, the Deep Adventure Dive and the Underwater Navigation Adventure dive are required components of the Advanced Open Water course. The other three Adventure Dives however can be any of the 26 PADI Adventure Dives that you choose. Options range from Digital Underwater Imaging, to Peak Performance Buoyancy or Night Diver. The choice really is yours! Have a chat with our superbly knowledgeable dive centre staff to see what Adventure Dives are on offer.
