  • Trip introduction

    If you're a certified Open Water Diver, the Advanced Open Water Diver course gives you the experience and the certification to explore deeper and more exciting dive sites. This course is designed with less theory classes and more in-water training sessions. You'll also do 5 dives with a specialized focus: one compulsory Deep Dive and one compulsory Underwater Navigation Dive, as well as three elective dives that you can choose. Over 2 days, you'll complete these 5 dives, going as deep as 98 feet. At the end of your training, you will be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.

    NOTE: You have to be a certified Open Water Diver to book this scuba course.

    Destination

    Goa, the place known for its tropical beaches, has more to offer than just the warm sun and soft sands. Located just off the coastline is the Ilha Grande Island, a hub for all water sports, from snorkelling to fishing. Your Advanced Open Water Diver course will take place at the multiple dive sites that Grande Island has to offer. One of the more interesting diving attractions at Grande Island is the wreckage of SS Rita, a cargo ship that ran aground in the 1950s and sunk near the island. Other diving spots around the island such as Coral Garden and Shelter Cove offer a glimpse into the fascinating diversity of marine life. Here, divers can expect to swim past Scorpion Fish, Puffer Fish, Fusiliers, Snappers, Lion Fish, crabs and many more underwater species. And if you’re lucky, you might even encounter the odd sting ray or dolphin.
