ADVANCED OPEN WATER
Exploration, Excitement, Experiences!!! This is what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. We also include a breadth of knowledge development which includes dive planning, gas planning, dive theory, and physiology. We take a deeper look at equipment choices and configurations. Ultimately, the students will get into the pool for an Open Water review and then a challenging session to work on buoyancy, propulsion, trim, balance, and control. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and helps to create a foundation of skill and knowledge that results in safer, more skilled, confident and independent divers.
What Will You Learn?
You’ll broaden your knowledge and hone your skills and complete five adventure dives that introduce you to:
Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30mt/ 60-100ft)
A sampler of three more Adventure Dives
The minimum standard requirements are completing the knowledge review questions in the Adventure In Diving Manual and 5 adventure dives. In this CSDA led course, you will get an additional classroom session, to go over information that is not covered in the book, and also a pool session to hone your skills, prior to your open water dives.
