ADVANCED OPEN WATER COURSE
This course is the second level direct from the Open Water diver. The objective is to experience with different kinds of diving available around the world and to practice more diving skills so you can master them and be able to make a bit more demanding kind of dives.
Along three days, your instructor will lead you through the different stages of this course which requires 5 dives. Two of the dives are mandatory to be navigation and deep dives. The other three dives are optional from a list of different specialties available in your manual.
If you are booking this course, please let us know your interests before you start with the course, so we can guide you on the selection of the three optional dives you need to choose.

The course requires five dives for you to get certified. We include an extra dive that may be just a fun dive or to replace one of the dives in case you miss it or should any problem arise.
Before you start your course, you will have to do some independent study on you manual. You will need to read the chapter of the first two specialties you chose (we highly recommend to choose the buoyancy dive and navigation as first ones) so you will have the information needed to start your course.
Your instructor will lead you through the knowledge development part and will give you the proper briefings just before the dives so you know what to expect and what will be the performance requirements for each dive.
Consider that there are many dives from your manual that may not be available such as ice diving or dry suit diving. Please let us know about your interests before you start with your independent study.
As it is a very flexible course, the itinerary is just an approach of the real schedule, you will have to talk to your instructor and agree if there will be any change.
