Wow, well done Diana Endsor on passing the Instructor Examinations. By all accounts some excellent scores, keeping the Divecrew tradition alive and well. Great also to see in the pool Philip Holt and Tom Fox, new Divecrew Instructors. We had a very busy weekend. Full and busy wreck course in Stoney Cove, Open Water Course, Scuba Reviews and Try Dives. Divecrew are still looking for more Dive Masters and Instructors. Watch out for a Go Pro Night. As always thanks to the TEAM for ensuring all our courses went ahead this weekend, making some very happy divers.

Buoyancy control devices come in many sizes, shapes and colours, but fundamentally come in either back inflation wing or wrap-around jacket styles. What do you dive? Have you tried the alternative? If not, why?

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences

That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Who should take this course?

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.

If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

What will you learn?

You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.

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 & the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks & many more.

What scuba gear will you use?

Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass & dive knife or dive tool. You’ll also use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. For example, you’d obviously use a dry suit for the Dry Suit Adventure Dive. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as dive light for night diving or lift bag for search and recovery diving.

The Dive Center staff will be able to advise you about the gear you will need to start your adventures in the Advanced Open Water Diver course.
