/// Advanced Open Water Diver Course


Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course. The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your instructor. This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving. We run the course in all our locations, this means that you can improve your dive skills whilst diving in the top dive locations in Indonesia.



/// What You Will Learn:

You’ll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives, each giving you knowledge and skills of a particular area that vary in accordance with your interests. These skills will include an introduction to the practical aspects of deep diving, physiological effects of deeper scuba diving, using the underwater compass, how to navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time, how to better use your dive computer and a lot more, depending on the Adventure Dives you will choose.

It is mandatory that you do the adventure dives for Underwater Navigator and Deep Diver, and you can choose three others. See below for a brief description of the main Adventure Dives that we teach.

Deep Diver
During your Deep Dive, you’ll cover the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to dive deep to 30m.
Underwater Navigation
During your Underwater Dive you’ll go on to familiarise yourself with the skills, knowledge, planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems, hazards and enjoyment of underwater navigation.
Wreck Diver
During your Wreck Dive you’ll go to our local ship wreck which is a 65m cargo ship that sunk over 50 years ago. You’ll develop your knowledge and techniques for wreck dives.
Night Diver
During your Night Dive you’ll go to one of our dive sites. You’ll learn to prepare for night dive activities and develop your knowledge and techniques for night diving.
Multilevel Diver
During your Multilevel Dive you’ll learn about the importance of multilevel diving, and you will be exposed to a variety of different types of multilevel dive calculators (the Wheel and various types of dive computers).
Underwater Digital Photography
During your Underwater Photography Dive you’ll use our digital camera, and put in to practice the tips and techniques you learned from your instructor and the PADI Digital Underwater Photograghy Manual. You will take away with you a CD with the images that you took underwater so you can share the thrill of diving with friends and family.
Underwater Naturalist
During your Underwater Naturalist Dive we will introduce you to different aquatic life and include an overview of responsible human interactions with aquatic life. Bunaken Island is a great place for this. It is known as one of the most diverse marine environments in the world – there is more than 2,000 species of fish and 400 species of corals, this is more than 70% of the know species in the world!
Peak Performance Buoyancy
During this dive you will learn Peak Performance Buoyancy fundamentals. It is an ideal opportunity to polish buoyancy control beyond the Open Water Diver level, and for most people this is the dive that improves their diving the most.

/// Prerequisites:


To take this course, you must be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification of the same level from another training organization) and you must be at least 15 years old (12 for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver)

The Fun Part
Your Choice. One reason you’ll love the Advanced Open Water Diver course is that you and your instructor choose from 15 types of Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can try your hand at digital underwater photography, wreck diving and drift diving, underwater videography, peak performance buoyancy and much more.
The Scuba Gear You Will Use
You will use all the basic scuba gear including your underwater compass. Depending on which three adventure dives you pick, you may also try out underwater photography equipment, a dive light or lift bags.
The Learning Materials You Will Need
PADI’s Adventures in Diving Manual provides information on more than 16 types of specialty diving. You’ll use it as a guidebook to improve your diving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures. For example if night diving is one of your choices you will flip to the night diving chapter. Once you’ve read the pages, previewed the skills and answered the knowledge review your instructor will guide you on your first night diving adventure.
What does the schedule look like?
We can do the 5 course adventure dives over 2/3 days. For each adventure dive there is a chapter to read from your course manual, a knowledge review and then the dive.

PADI-e-learning

Ultimate Flexibility with Advanced Open Water with eLearning
With eLearning all the theory can be done online at www.PADI.com before you get here, this allows you to take your time to do the theory at home (days or weeks or months), and you will get more time for fun diving/relaxing when you are here.
What does the schedule look like?
Since all the theory will have been completed by the time you get here, you just need to conduct the five course Adventure Dives. These can be done over 2/3 days, or mixed with fun dives during the time that you are here. Two of these are mandatory; the Deep Adventure Dive and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive. The other three dives that you complete can be chosen from a wide range of Adventure Dives, we recommend Night Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist, Underwater Photo and Wreck.

The Advanced Course and Specialty Courses
If you have time, you may want to consider doing a specialty course as well. This is a great way to gain additional experience and skills with extra dives in a particular subject, eg Wreck Diving.

Each dive on the advanced course is the first dive of the specialty course. For example, the deep dive on the advanced course is the first dive of the Deep Diving specialty course. You can therefore continue with some more deep dives to obtain the Deep Diving Specialty.
