Ready to take your Scuba diving to the next level? The Advanced Open Water Diver certification will take you to new depths and allow you to explore the more advanced and exciting dive sites Oahu has to offer. This is the perfect course if you’ve completed your Open Water Diver certification but can’t wait to get back in the water and refine your skills.
You will spend less time doing home study than you did during your Open Water Course. You will learn what you can expect on your 5 specialized open water dives. There are two core dives that you must complete, the Underwater Navigation dive and the Deep Dive.
During the Deep Dive you will learn about the challenges and physical effects of deeper diving. The Underwater Navigation Dive will refine your compass navigation skills, and learn to maneuver underwater using kick cycles, dive time and visual markers. You will also be able to choose your last 3 dives from a list of specialty adventure dives, and in the course you will learn about 5 of the most popular.
In the advanced course you will also get a chance to explore your specific interests. For the remaining 3 dives you can choose from a range of specialized dives. Some of these are geared towards improving your skills as a diver such as the Peak Performance Buoyancy Dive, while others will make diving more enjoyable to you. Some of the dives you can choose from include Underwater Photography, Underwater Naturalist, Fish Identification, Night Dive, Search and Recover, or Wreck Diver.
Going deeper and exploring more interesting dive sites will be sure to get you excited about your new lifelong hobby. If you love scuba diving, you will love this course.
