  • Trip introduction

    This 2-day PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (AOWD) course takes you deeper than you've ever gone before. During this time, you'll go as deep as 18-30 metres/60-100 feet, and will learn how to use a dive knife, and how to navigate underwater using a dive compass. You’ll have to complete a series of 5 dives to earn this certification, including a compulsory deep sea dive and an underwater navigation dive. Some of the popular adventure dives are the wreck dive, night dive, underwater naturalist, or underwater photographer. With very few classroom sessions and no written examination, this Advanced OWD lets you spend more time in the water, fine-tuning your skills.

    NOTE: You need to be a certified PADI Open Water Diver to undertake this course. You will also be expected to swim 200 metres (with any swimming stroke) and float for 10 minutes in open water.

    Trip details
  • Day 1 of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course

    Arrive at the dive centre in the morning and meet your dive crew. (If you're undertaking the night dive, you'll set off for the dive site at 16:30 hrs and will return to the dive centre by 19:30 hrs. ) There is very little theory to be completed for the PADI Advanced Open Water Course, so you will spend more time in the water. You'll set off with the team to the dive spot, depending on the dives you've chosen. You'll learn how to use a dive knife and compass, and will be able to practise both skills during the compulsory underwater navigation dive and deep sea dive. You'll enjoy lunch on the boat between dives, and will return to the dive centre by mid-afternoon. The rest of the evening is free.

    This is a day trip, so no accommodation is included.

    You'll be spending most of the day on the boat today. Lunch and light snacks are provided on the boat, as well as purified drinking water. By mid-afternoon, you'll be dropped off back at the dive centre.
