Advanced Open Water Diver course description


For more information on the Advanced Open Water Diver course, read the description below.

The Advanced Open Water Diver course introduces you to new and special areas in diving and increases your maximum diving depth to more than 30 meters! Becoming an Advanced Open Water Diver is a great adventure and a lot of fun! The course covers the following topics:

  • How to safely dive down to more than 30 meters
  • How to navigate underwater using instruments and your surroundings
  • How to lead a buddy team underwater
  • Planning your dives
  • Gaining more experience during the 5 course dives
  • How to improve your buoyancy

The course is split into three sections. Deep divingunderwater navigation, and other specialty dives. The first two are mandatory but you can choose the last one freely together with your dive instructor. The best part: All dives also count towards your specialty course certifications of the chosen topics! Whichever you choose, each section of the Advanced Open Water Diver course will teach you more about diving and help you become a better scuba diver.

Deep diving

During the deep-diving specialty dives, you will dive down to 30 meters for the first time.

This is one of the coolest experiences you will ever make so enjoy it! Everything feels different at depth. Besides exploring new regions you have never been to underwater, you and your instructor will answer the following questions together:

  • What’s different about diving deeper?
  • What is nitrogen narcosis?
  • How do colors and perception change at depth?
  • How do we handle our instruments on a deep dive?

Underwater Navigation

In this section, you practice navigating underwater using your natural surroundings and various instruments.

We cover the following topics:

  • Dive computers
  • Using an underwater compass
  • Patterns underwater
  • Finding your course and direction underwater

Of course, underwater navigation is included in the Advanced Open Water Diver online course.

Choose a specialty

Together with your instructor, you get to pick the last specialty dive from a number of options that interest you most.

This is a great opportunity to check out new areas in diving or work on something you have had troubles with in the past. We often recommend peak-perfect buoyancy or dive-control management as these skills are extremely useful!

Your dive instructor will evaluate your diving skills during and after the course. If you passed all the practical skills you will become a certified Advanced Open Water Diver!

Congratulations!
