Finished your Open Water Diver Certification and ready for the next step? The Advanced Adventurer Certification will allow you to expand your skills and increase your confidence in the water.
The Advanced Adventurer course consists of 5 dives over 2-3 days with much less focus on theory and more focus on the practical side of diving. You’ll get to chat with your instructor and choose 3 different specialties you’d like to do a sample dive from, including a Navigation and Deep Specialty Dive.
The Advanced Adventurer Certification will qualify you to dive anywhere in the world up to depth of 30 meters, giving you even more access to the underwater world. The course will increase your confidence and independence as a recreational diver.
Underwater Navigation: Learn to navigate using both a compass and natural navigation techniques to find your way around underwater.
Deep Dive: Learn to dive down to 30 meters and increase your diving opportunities.
Enriched Air Diving (Nitrox): An introduction to diving on Nitrox. Extend your allowable bottom time and increase the safety factor. Complete one more Nitrox Dive after the Advanced Course and to get a Nitrox certification.
Underwater Naturalist: Improve your knowledge of the underwater environment and the huge range of creatures which live in it. There's a lot more down there than you may have first thought.
Peak performance buoyancy: Although we will be working on your general diving skills throughout the course, this dive will concentrate 100% on your buoyancy skills. We will be taking you into our specifically designed underwater structure to hone your skills.
Drift Diving: Not much swimming involved here, just get in the water and let the current take you along the reef.
Night Diving: Diving by torchlight, this specialty opens up a whole new world, as the daytime life goes to sleep, the night shift comes out in the form of lobsters, crabs, shrimps and the phosphorescence has to be seen to be believed.
Computer Diving: Increase your allowable bottom time while staying well within the safety limits, this module covers use of diving computers.
Marine Ecology: Learn about the human impact on coral reefs and the underwater environment in general.
Shark Ecology: Learn about how these beautiful creatures and their behaviour are often misunderstood, how to separate shark facts from fiction and how you can safely observe them in their natural habitat.
Underwater Digital Photography: This speaks for itself, but isn't as easy as you think as unfortunately fish don't pose.
