Advanced Open Water Diver
Advanced Open Water Diver Course is intended to provide certified divers an introduction into different specialties before you commit to completing a full program. It’s a great way to experience what advanced training is all about and how valuable it can be to your diving adventures. During the Advanced Open Water Course, you will have the chance to try out five different specialties. You will complete one open water training dive per specialty, and if you decide to take a full program in any of the specialties you tried, the dive you took can be applied to your advanced certification.
At Southern Dreams Diving Club we offer the following specialties:
- Boat Diving

Deep Dive is mandatory. Our Instructors will help you to choose the remaining 4 adventure dives according to your personal interests and preferences.
Each dive has a chapter dedicated to it in the Advanced manual. In order to prepare for each dive, you will independently study the chapter in question plus complete the related exercises in the knowledge review section. There are no quizzes or exams. Just the chapter to read and a briefing of your instructor before going underwater! Save time by studying online, and then complete your dives when you arrive to Candidasa, Bali.
You can do this course in 2 or 3 days, in a flexible schedule.
