PADI Advanced Open Water

PADI’s Advanced Open Water course is the next step in the advanced SCUBA certifications. It is designed to fine tune your dive skills, allowing you to explore exciting new types of diving, under the supervision of a PADI instructor.

This is an in-water, performance based course consisting of five dives. The ‘deep’ dive and ‘navigation’ dive are standard, the final three dives will be chosen by yourself and your PADI Instructor, based on your individual preferences.

During this two day course, you will go through a knowledge review on each dicipline of diving with your Instructor.  This can easily be done on the boat or beach – so you don’t have to be in the classroom on your holiday.  Afterwards your Instructor will explain what you will do on the specific dive.  In the case of the navigation dive you will practice on land and then whilst diving with an underwater compass.   The drift dive you will experience how to correctly enter and exit the water from the boat.

Marina Divers Sharm makes sure that your PADI Advanced Open Water course is a fun and interactive experience.  You will feel more comfortable and confident to try the many exciting dives Sharm el Sheikh has to offer and you will be qualified to go to 30 metres making wall diving in the Straits of Tiran and Ras Mohamed National Park an unforgettable experience.

Dives that are particularly suitable for this area are: Multilevel Diver, Drift Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, AWARE fish identification, Underwater Naturalist, and Night Diver.
