You don’t need a certain number of dives or advanced diving experience to enter the PADI Advanced Open Water course. The course is designed to advance your diving skills and build confidence underwater. Students are encouraged to take this course right after PADI Open Water Diver certification. During your Advanced Open Water, you do not need to pass an exam, and the only “homework” you have to do consists of five Knowledge Reviews from the Adventure dives you will choose. 

Mandatory Adventures Dives: Deep Dive and Underwater Navigation
You might have always dreamt about diving deeper, and you want to challenge yourself. The Deep Dive Adventure will provide both to you. Dive down to 30meters/100feet with your instructor, and practice some interesting exercises to see how the pressure at that depth affects the environment and your body. You will also learn more about dive planning and risk management.

You might have also felt disoriented at times underwater, and wondered how your guide was able to guide himself or herself underwater. The Underwater Navigation Adventure will help you understand how to get your bearings while scuba diving, enhance your compass skills, and orient yourself using the natural underwater landscape.

Other adventures:

  • Have you wondered what it’s like underwater once the sun is set? You can finally have your answer with the Night Dive Adventure. There are more to discover that you cannot find during the day.
  • Are you are amazed by how close your instructor can get to the reef without damaging it? the Peak Performance Buoyancy Adventure will help you improve not only your buoyancy, but also your position and your kicking underwater.
  • Do you always see amazing fish, but are never able to describe them or remember their names? The Fish Identification Adventure is made for you. You will learn more about fish species and how to recognize one species from another.
  • Titanic is your favourite movie and you always dreamt about diving on a shipwreck? The Wreck Dive Adventure brings you down to a sunken ship to observe how an artificial reef can be home to thousands of fish. You will as well learn about hazards and how to stay safe while wreck diving.
  • Do you want to let the current carry you? The Drift Dive Adventure will teach you the proper techniques to dive in the current. You will learn the negative entry technique and much more during this fantastic experience.

​This is a shortlist of the many different adventure dives you can choose to take during your PADI Advanced Open Water Course.
