Advanced Open Water Diver
AOWD is your next step in diving education. The goal of this course is to improve your skills that you have learned before. You don’t need to be an advanced diver to start this training and you can start it right after the OWD course. Now your BCD’s inflator ceases to be the center of your interest and you focus on completing tasks such as underwater navigation, searching for and extracting sunken things, swimming with a scooter or using a flashlight during night dives. This is your time for an adventure. If you have just completed the basic training, the AOWD course gives you an additional 5 dives under the supervision of an instructor which will increase your self-confidence underwater, allow you to “swim around” and let you realize your passion.
The AOWD course consists of 5 dives with assigned tasks. Two tasks are mandatory: deep diving and underwater navigation. The other three you will choose together with your instructor from among a wide range of diving Adventure like excellent buoyancy, night diving, wreck diving, underwater photography, scooter diving and much more. During deep diving, you will learn how to plan your time underwater and the depth at which you want to dive. Underwater navigation will make sure that you do not lose your orientation and always return to the place where you started diving, night diving will teach you how to use the flashlight and communicate with it. The variety of tasks to be done is very large and what you choose depends on you and what you are interested in.
During this course you should have your own equipment. You will get from us cylinders with air, weights and specialized equipment needed to perform course tasks such as compass and surface buoy. If you miss an item, you will be able to rent it.
