This is exactly what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is about. To participate in this course, as a diver you do not have to be “advanced” - you should become an advanced diver using the course, and you can start right after your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course will help you to improve your skills in various “adventure dives” (adventure) and thus develop more confidence under water. Under the supervision of your PADI instructor, you will sniff into various special areas of diving and gain more and more diving experience. You record further dives in your logbook and develop your diving skills with each dive; you will discover new areas of diving that are even more fun.
There are credit options! Every adventure dive can be counted as the first dive of the corresponding PADI special course . If you have already completed any PADI specialty course, ask your instructor if he will count you as an adventure dive.
Who should take this course?
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old and willing to continue their diving training should register for an Advanced Open Diver course. Young divers ("Juniors") can only take part in certain adventure dives - inquire with your PADI instructor.
If you are already a PADI Adventure Diver , you only need to take two more adventure dives to get the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
You plan your course with your instructor by choosing from a long list of different adventure dives. The course consists of five dives: Two dives are mandatory - deep diving and underwater navigation - you can choose the other three.
The deep dive adventure dive teaches you how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper dives. During the adventure dive "Underwater Navigation" you will refine your navigation skills with the compass and learn to navigate better with landmarks on land and by means of your fins and the time measured.
The additional knowledge and skills that you can acquire expand your areas of interest and offer you new underwater adventures - underwater photo / video, buoyancy control, fish identification, wreck diving, and much more.
