Fulidhoo is the perfect place to do your Advanced Course! You'll be starting your course on the shallow easy dive sites, getting comfortable with the next level of skill sets. Once you have build up your skills together with your instructor, you will be ready to go and get mesmerized on the big blue dive sites for your Deep dive, and possibly your night dive. Besides getting to the next level in diving, you will have your mind blown by the ocean life in this part of the world!

As well as an abundance of sharks on the outer reefs, Vaavu Atoll is home to a real variety of reef life. On nearly every reef, you'll find everything from huge Napoleon wrasse, eels, tuna, barracuda and jackfish down to the tiny nudibranches. Schools of eagle rays are common on the bigger dive sites as are turtles and sting rays. From May to December there is a chance to see feeding manta rays not far from the island. But keep in mind, there are a difference between diving inside the atoll and outside the atoll. The corals has taken a hit during the recent El Nino, and are not in great shape inside the atoll. If you are not comfortable diving deeper than 18m, you will be diving mostly inside the atoll, and here, the visibility will not be as great as on the outside, and the corals and marine life will be of lesser wow factor.

Fulidhoo sits on the northern edge of Vaavu Atoll and lies just a few hours away from the equator. At 700m long and 200m wide, it’s not much more than a sliver of sand in the vast ocean. Yet thanks to the availability of fresh water, local vegetation and the bountiful sea, its remote community has thrived for centuries. Arriving on the island, you will quickly feel how your pace slows down as you get lullabyed into island life. There are a few cafe's on this small island, and a beautiful bikini beach in a quiet lagoon, but besides that... there is not much else than lots of green vegetation and white sand. Oh, and the cool fruitbats in the trees, the stingrays feeding around the little jetty in the evening, the friendly people living on the island, their drumming nights and of course the ridiculously blue and warm water surrounding the island.

Introduction to course
The PADI Advanced Open Water course will get you even more comfortable in the water by simply completing five adventure dives under the supervision of a PADI Instructor. If you're looking to build your confidence and gain more experience, this is the natural next step on the ladder.
The course is designed so you can go straight into it after the Open Water Diver course. The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your diving skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun diving.
You'll alter your skills by completing 5 adventure dives that introduce you to:

- Underwater navigation
- Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 meters)
- A sample of 3 Adventure Dives of your choice



DIVE PACKAGE:
Itinerary
The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 2 to 3 days depending on the students enrolled. 5 dives will be spread out over the available days. No more than 3 training dives will be conducted each day. To give you an idea of what to expect, see the itinerary below:

Day 1:
Arrive and relax, start reading the chapters that apply to your course

Day 2:
Reviewing of the chapters applying for the dives of the day

Day 3:
Reviewing of the chapters applying for the dives of the day

Day 4:

Reviewing of the chapters applying for the dives of the day
check out.

Day 5:
Check out after breakfast, and catch your ferry to the next island. Or extend your days on Fulidhoo with a few days of fundiving!

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).

We HIGHLY recommend that you book an extra night of accommodation so you do not have to check out on the last day of your course.

If you want a longer itinerary, you can add extra days of diving and accommodation upon booking

Local transport

Transfer
Fulidhoo feels remote, but it’s actually surprisingly easy to get to. It’s a far flung desert island in a convenient location! Situated just south of South Male Atoll, on the northern perimeter of Vaavu Atoll, there are very few resorts in the area, which means that dive sites are often completely deserted and boat traffic is considerably less than in the Male atolls. Despite this, it only takes just over an hour to get here from the capital. There is also a ferry connection between Fulidhoo and Maafushi Island.

Upon booking, the dive center will be notified regarding your arrival date. Please make sure you contact the dive center with your flight information in order for them to arrange your transfer accordingly!
You have the option of travelling by public ferry which departs three times a week, or by daily speedboat (except Fridays).

10 days prior to your trip, you and the dive center will receive an e-mail reminder. If you have not contacted the dive center yet, this is a good time to do so!

You can find all the contact details for the dive center on your voucher.
