Advanced Open Water Diver Certification


Advanced Open Water Diver Course is intended to provide certified divers an introduction into different specialties. And who knows? Maybe after, you may commit to completing a full program.

In truth, it’s a great way to experience what advanced training is all about. And, at the same time, how valuable it can be to your diving adventures.

During the course, you will have the chance to try out five different specialties. In fact, 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, then, the dive you took can be applied to your advanced certification.

Deep Dive is mandatory. Our Instructors will help you to choose the remaining 4 adventure dives according to your interests and your preferences as well.

Each dive has a chapter dedicated to it in the manual. To prepare for each dive, first, you will independently study the chapter in question. After you will complete the exercises in the knowledge review. Finally, and good news! There is no exam. Just the chapter to read and a briefing of your instructor before going underwater!

Save time by studying online. Most important, when you arrive at Candidasa, then, you’ll only have to focus on the dives!
