All the details:
The PADI Open Water Diver course teaches you to be a diver. PADI Advanced Open Water Diver encourages you to move towards ‘thinking like a diver’ while helping you to build confidence and expand your scuba skills through five different Adventure Dives. You don’t have to be ‘advanced’ to take it - it’s designed to advance your diving so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. You’ll be encouraged to think about what you’re doing before, during and after every Adventure Dive in the same way more experienced divers do. It focuses on principles such as gas management, situational awareness and buddy communications. You try out the first dive of five different specialities while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving. Part of the fun of diving is choosing your own equipment and Advanced Open Water is the time to start thinking about this (if you haven’t already). You’ll be a better and safer diver if each time you dive you are in your own familiar, well maintained gear. In particular for this course you will require your own compass and we would recommend an underwater torch. Kit hire is not included in the cost of the course. Dive Academy members receive free kit hire when participating in our courses. Speak to a member of the team about membership. PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to enrol in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. This course takes place over two days - usually a weekend.
