The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is designed as an experience programme and is all about diving. There are no classroom sessions involved. This is the PADI course to fine-tune your diving skills and increase your confidence.

During the course you will experience some of diving’s most popular activities and develop scuba diving skills that will make your diving safer and more enjoyable. After reading a chapter of the PADI manual and completing a knowledge review, your Nesima scuba diving instructor will give you a briefing and then you will make your dive.

You will make a total of 5 dives, two of which are core dives and three elective dives. The two core dives that are obligatory are the deep dive and the navigation dive. The deep dive will introduce you to the physiological effects of diving deeper. The navigation dive will teach you how to use a compass and navigate underwater. Once you have completed these dives you have a choice of three elective dives that you can make such as; boat, drift, fish ID, multilevel, night, peak performance buoyancy, search and rescue, underwater naturalist and wreck.
