21 Jun 5 Reasons to do your PADI Advanced Open Water Course
Here are some compelling reasons for you to take the Advanced Open Water Course.
Once you’ve gained the advanced open water certification, you’ll be able to dive to much greater depths. A regular open water diver can dive to about 18 meters, whereas an advanced open water diver has an extended depth of up to 30 meters, almost double the amount!
Opens up new dive courses
With the added depth, knowledge and water skills gained in the advanced open water course, you’ll have access to other specialty diving courses. These include night diving, wreck diving and much more. Some of the specialty dives (as well as certain dive sites) require you to have the advanced open water certification before you can participate in them. So, make sure you get yours before jumping into the specialty dives!
By completing the advanced open water course, you’ll have taken the next step to becoming a better and more competent diver. The water skills and environmental awareness you’ll gain from the course will increase your confidence underwater, as well as make you a safer diver.
You’ll be learning and mastering your existing skills as well as gaining new skills, such as buoyancy control, navigation and environmental awareness. These are lifelong skills you’ll take with you on your diving excursions wherever you go. Think of it as an investment for yourself and your safety while diving.
