Alongside a certified dive instructor, you'll dive deep underwater and focus on building specific capabilities through speciality dives like the night dive, wreck dive and more. You'll complete your course in the waters of Chidiya Tapu, one of the most secluded dive spots in the Andamans, and earn your Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
