To become a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver you will start your learning path with your instructor by choosing your adventure dives. You’ll learn how to plan dives and to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of the different dives. The knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.
Beyond using basic scuba equipment (mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank), you’ll also need specialised gear depending on the adventure dives you choose. For example, you would obviously use a compass for your navigation dive, a dive light for night diving or lift bag for search and recovery diving. Your PADI Instructor will explain how to use the equipment that you need.
Every time you dive, you hope you'll see something new - some new species. Sometimes the ocean gives you a gift, sometimes it doesn't.
