PADI Advanced OW Course - Dolphin Queen

Advanced Open Water course

This course concentrates on giving you more experience in diving in different conditions, depths and using new equipment (dive computer). This certification allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 30m, opening up more dive sites for you to explore!

Doing your Advanced Open Water course on our livaboards will give you a great advantage by having an instructor for several days, giving you more time and better quality training while making it easier as you don't need to perform in the traditional 5 dives but you can strech the course to a more relaxed gradual progress.

For this course you will get the "Adventures in diving" manual from which you will study 5 dives/chapters. Two of them being compulsory: Deep and Navigation. The other 3 training dives are optional. The course consists of 2 segments: Knowledge Development and an Open Water dive. This means that the Advanced Open Water is a practical course that does not consist of theoretical examination as part of the course, but includes a knowledge review over the key points from the 5 training dives and the actual dive from which you will receive feedback.
