The SDI or PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course is the certification for divers who want to further their education and experience, and are already certified as Open Water. Completed in 2 days, it is an exciting way to get a taste of some of the Specialty Courses we offer like drift diving in currents, diving on shipwrecks, and fine tuning your buoyancy skills. This course will prepare you for a range of different dive experiences and will qualify you to dive anywhere in the world to a depth of 100ft/30m.

The Advanced Open Water Diver course is a great way to expand your knowledge and become a better diver. Be sure to complete the Peak Performance Buoyancy dive during your course to get really good really fast!  Dives like this will prepare you for a more advanced adventure like the Cavern Diver Course.

Some of the dives you can do:

Deep Dive – During this dive we dive to a depth of more than 60ft/18m and to a maximum depth of 100ft/30m. We will talk about how the greater pressure affects us, how light behaves at depth, and how our air consumption changes as depth does, as well as the potential effect of Nitrogen Narcosis.

Nitrox or Enriched Air  Dive – This is a great dive to couple with the deep dive above.  You will learn all about adding a little more oxygen to your tank to be able to stay down longer and have shorter surface interval.  If you participate in the Nitrox or Enriched Air Diver Course, you will not be charged for Nitrox tanks for the rest of your dives!

Underwater Navigation – This dive is all about enhancing your navigational abilities during dives using compass techniques and natural underwater references.

Drift Dive – This dive is all about preparing you for diving in currents. We will talk about safety equipment, buoyancy control, and what creates currents, as well as some practice using an inflatable marker buoy. This is recommended as most diving in this area can involve strong currents.

Peak Performance Buoyancy – Your instructor will teach you some of the ‘Tricks of the Trade’ gathered over thousands of dives to help give you the essential advanced skills to better enjoy many other types of diving.

Fish Identification – You will not only learn the common names of the fish you see on the reefs of the Caribbean but also the techniques to identify many of the fish you will encounter on future dive trips around the world.
