PAVING THE WAY TO ADVENTURE DIVING
It's fascinating, it's fun, it will fit into your vacation schedule - and it will make you a much better diver.
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course delivers on all this. No exam and minimal reading, but five great dives. Not only will you get to see some incredible aquatic life, but on the Fish Identification dive you'll learn how to identify it using your complimentary underwater Tokoriki fish card. Or you could video or photograph it on the Digital Underwater Imaging dive.
A very special option is the Night dive - visiting the reef after dark is an experience not to be missed. On the other hand, if you haven't dived for a while, you might choose an easier option - a simple Boat dive can be counted towards your certification.
Then there are two dives that you must do in order to qualify as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. The Deep dive allows you to experience diving to a maximum depth of 30 m/ 100 ft in a safe and controlled environment, and completing this means that your future dives need no longer be limited to 18 m/ 60 ft.
Finally there is the Underwater Navigation dive. You'll learn how to not go round in circles (unless you plan to), how to use compass and natural navigation techniques, and all in all how to become more aware of your surroundings underwater.
