Doing the Advanced Open Water Program is an incredible 3 day “hands on” course in which you improve those diving skills you already have. Experience more by going deeper than 18 meters, learning how the fish act, how to navigate and not get lost! We will give these and many other useful and fun tools to increase your confidence and independence. After completion you will receive your Advanced Diver certificate which will allow you to dive more advanced divesites all around the world. Doing your course from land gives you the opportunity to see the dive sites AND stay in your resort at night! We go out by comfortable speedboat and if you have friends or family that don’t dive, they can join for a day of snorkeling or maybe even do a try dive at the same time? This is mainly a practical course and there is no exam, so the Advanced course is a very nice way to better your skills on your holiday. The minimum dives required for the Advanced course is 5, but we actually do six dives, at no additional cost.

To start the Advanced course you need to be a certified Open Water Diver. In total you need to do 5 so-called Adventure Dives, each with a specific topic. If there is a 6th dive, it is a regular fundive. Your instructor will do a theory session on each topic before the dives and under water there are a few exercises to be done. Don’t worry, the skills are easy and there will be a lot of time for diving left since we have small groups and allow for long dive times. So no video’s, exams and homework! Just listen to you instructor and improve yourself on the dives.

Have you also considered an Advanced Course on our Liveaboards?

It is also possible to join us for a liveaboard and do your advanced course while you are on the boat. You will get more diving and more mentoring with your instructor while do more dives! Doing a night dive as part of your course is also and option on this trip, while they are not possible for our daytrips.
