Advanced Diver


Based on underwater experiences and challenges, the Advanced Open Water course aims to give you minimal classroom time and maximum dive time!
The Advanced Open Water Diver course is designed to build onto your fundamental dive skills learnt during the Open Water Diver course whilst introducing you to new underwater activities in new environments, so you don’t have to be an experienced diver to take this course.
The content and structure of the course is presented in a way that means it is designed specifically for somebody who has just completed their learn to dive course but on the other hand is more than suitable for the diver who has been diving for years at open water level, and now wants to upgrade their certification and gain some additional skills and knowledge.
What will you learn?
With your dive instructor you’ll complete 5 adventure dives based on specific underwater environments and activities. There are two required dives,Deep and Underwater Navigation, with another 3 elective dives assisting you to build your confidence and further develop your fundamental SCUBA skills. Your instructor will help you choose these 3 dives, ensuring you have the best possible opportunity to enhance your SCUBA experience whilst having maximum FUN – after all, the Adelaide Scuba instructional team wants to pass on the best of their own knowledge to you!
During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventure dives you complete. Advanced buoyancy techniques, fish identification, wreck exploration and mixed gas ‘NITROX’diving are just a selection of activities available.
The standard course schedule:
  • Wednesday Orientation and Registration Session
  • Saturday: 3 shore based dives focusing on building the foundations of your advanced SCUBA diving.
