PADI Advanced OW Course - Dolphin Queen

Advanced Open Water course

This course concentrates on giving you more experience diving in different conditions and depths. This certification allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 30 meters, opening up more possibilities for dive sites for you to explore!

Doing your Advanced Open Water course on our liveaboard will give you a great advantage by having an instructor for several days, giving you time and better quality training while making it easier as you don't need to perform in the traditional 5 dives but you can stretch 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 are compulsory: Deep Dive 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.
