TWO DIVES REQUIRED FOR ADVANCED

For the Advanced 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 diving to deeper depths. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you to navigate using kick ­cycles, visual landmarks and time, building on your skills from the Open Water Course.

The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have ­ buoyancy control, search and recovery, exploring wrecks and many more.

Once you complete your Advanced you will be qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 30m. Think of how many dive sites that would open up for you!
