SSI Advanced Open Water Diver

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They’re what the SSI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it. Therefore, it’s been designed so you can go straight into it after the SSI Open Water Diver course.

The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills. Enabling you to 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 SSI 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 scuba diving.

You’ll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to:
• Underwater navigation
• Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet)
• An introduction to three more Adventure Dives of your choice

One reason you’ll love the SSI Advanced Open Water Diver course is that you and your instructor choose from 15 types of Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can try your hand at Digital Underwater Photography, Wreck Diving, Night Diving, Search and Recovery and much more.

The knowledge and skills you get in the SSI Advanced Open Water Diver course vary with your interest and the adventures you have, but include:
• Practical aspects of deep diving
• Physiological effects of deeper scuba diving.
• More ways to use your underwater compass
• How to navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time
• How to better use your dive computer
• And much, much more, depending on the Adventure Dives you choose

You use all the basic scuba gear including your underwater compass. Depending on which three adventure dives you pick, you may also be introduced to underwater photography equipment , a dive light, lift bags, a dive flag/float or other specialty gear.

SSI’s Adventures in Diving Manual and DVD provide information on more than 15 types of specialty diving. You’ll use them as a guidebook to improve your diving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures.
