IF YOU WANT TO INCREASE YOUR CONFIDENCE, EXPLORE MORE OF THE UNDERWATER WORLD AND DEVELOP MORE OF YOUR SCUBA DIVING CAPABILITIES THEN THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU!
Most people assume that the Advanced Open Water Course is for 'advanced' divers and that they need vast amounts of dive experience to take part. In essence, this course is aimed at not just the experienced diver but also at the new diver.
This course is designed to maximise your in-water learning (there's no classroom learning or exams), and it's a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of one of our experienced instructors so that by the time you have finished the course you will be a better and safer diver.
You will be introduced to a range of different diving types under varying conditions so it's a great way to get a taste of the various Specialty courses that you can undertake to continue your diving education.
This course involves 5 FUN dives with a knowledge review to be completed before each dive.
The 2 compulsory dives are
