What can you expect from this PADI Advanced Open Water course in the Dominican?

You can enroll immediately after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification regardless of your skill level. The course helps you build confidence in navigation, fine-tune buoyancy skills and introduces you to different diving activities such as wreck diving.

During the Deep Dive (up to 30 meter / 100 feet), you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving.

The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.

While Deep Diving and Underwater Navigation are mandatory, together with your dive instructor, you can choose 3 other adventure dives to gain the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

One of the top choices for our students is the Wreck Dive, where we visit Wreck Monica

Also think about buoyancy control, fish identification, boat diving, underwater photo / video (especially if you have a GoPro or underwater camera already) or maybe enriched air (Nitrox) to expand your bottom time.

Why should you do your advanced training?

Once you graduate to Advanced Open Water Diver, you can dive deeper. You’ll be certified to 30 meters / 100 feet, giving you access to a wider variety of dive sites and marine life. There are many sea creatures that you can't see at shallower depths, and wrecks are often found deeper.
