The course builds on what you've already learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities in diving. Alter your skills by completing 5 adventure dives introducing you to: - Underwater navigation - Deeper water diving (from 18-30 meters) - and 3 Adventure Dives of your choice. (You and your instructor choose from 4 types of Adventure Dives to complete your course). Besides that, 6 fundives on the Great Barrier Reef are included in in this package (weather permitting)... So 11 dives in total!
PADI Advanced Open Water Dive Training Course - Course Schedule:
The Night Before Departure:
If you have time, we suggest you drop into the dive center, to arrange your dive equipment for the trip (this means you won’t have to do it at 6:00am on the morning of your trip!).
- Dives 1 & 2: Two pleasure dives to give you an introduction to diving on the Great Barrier Reef. This is also a great opportunity for you to acclimatize to the diving conditions, fine tune your skills or even to refresh your skills if it has been some time since your last dive.
- Dive 3 - Navigation Dive: After revising your knowledge review, your instructor will brief you on your navigation dive where you will complete some exercises using both compass and natural references to help improve your underwater navigation skills.
- Dive 4 - Night Dive: Here you will be introduced to night diving on the Great Barrier Reef. You will complete a simple navigation exercise before being given a guided tour with your instructor. During your night dive you can expect to find sleeping turtles, parrot fish and a variety of other marine life only encountered at night.
Days 2 & 3:
- Dive 1 - Deep Dive: During this dive we will give you the experience to safely conduct dives beyond your 18metre depth limit as an open water diver. Under the close supervision of your dive instructor you will be taken down to 30metres, where you will be tested for signs of nitrogen narcosis, shown the effects of increased pressure and colour absorption at depth.
With your three core dives now completed, you have five (5) day dives remaining on this trip (and another night dive if you want). of these 2 dives are still part of your Advanced Course.
Please allow a minimum of 24 hours, after your last dive, before flying.
(some countries will allow you to fly after 18 hours on land).
