PADI ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE (From Koh Lanta)
Your Next Dive Adventure is about to begin! As a certified scuba diver you’ve already experienced the thrill of exploring parts of the underwater world, but know there’s more to discover. Whether you’re looking for new dive adventures, to improve your scuba skills, or both at once, taking the next step will help you gain more confidence and meet more dive buddies. No formal classroom sessions, just a lot of diving. You can start learning online before your holidays or do the traditional way with a book during the course.
The course takes 2 days and you’ll plan your dives 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 and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.
To enroll in the course you must be PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent) and in reasonable physical health. Please see medical questions before signing up.
