A great course which really opens up the range of diving activities you can take part in, this is a very practical course with little reading and lots of diving. You do a total of 5 dives. The 2 mandatory dives are Underwater Navigation Dive and Deep Dive. You then choose 3 of the specialty diving skills listed below. Prior to each of these dives we go through some theory and have a thorough briefing. On the dives there are some exercises to complete and we teach you specific skills to make you an all round better 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 (Junior Advanced 18m) and increase your diving opportunities. Now you can be the one telling the stories about what you saw on the DEEP DIVE.....
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 behavior 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.
