COURSES ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER
The Advanced Open Water course gives you the possibility to improve your skills as Open Water Diver and expand your depth range from 18 meters to 30.
In this dive course of 5 dives, you have 2 mandatory dives: underwater navigation and deep immersion. Then, you can choose, among many others, the 3 that you lack.
In your previous dive course, your depth limit was 18m. With your Advanced Open Water course we teach you how to manage a deep dive up to 30m. Several factors get involved when are making a dive of this caliber, so we teach you to be more meticulous with safety, to manage your air in a more severe way and to maintain the peer system at all times. In this dive we can also be affected by narcosis, what we commonly call the diver’s drunkenness (of which you should have spoken in your OPEN WATER DIVER course).We teach you how to manage this type of situations and to solve them in a totally safe and effective way for all the members of the group.
This dive in the Advanced Open Water course is made so that your not just a package in a group of divers. Your instructor will talk to you and tell you what you are going to do during the dive, and the things that will help you. For example, learn to use a compass under water with mastery, learn to look for references underwater and teaching you to use those skills in case of losing the group, to be able to return to your ship or beach .without having to reach the surface. Even if you feel comfortable with a guide, you will find it very usefull all these skills in case that you lose the group or in case that you wish to go diving alone with your buddy.
We recommend that one of the optional dives be the Buoyancy trainig.
All divers should go through this dive, since it is practically the base of diving.
As you learned in your Open Water Diver course, buoyancy is very important when diving. On your first dive your instructors will do their best to tune your skills and help you have an almost perfect position in the water, which will help you not only to dive better, but to consume less air, to go more relaxed and, above all, to enjoy much more of the underwater world.
