The Advanced Open Water Course is a great deal of fun, and you will learn a lot at the same time. Lots of divers call it ”the start of real diving”. The course consists of five open water dives and can be completed in 2-3 days, depending on your schedule.
As always, you will receive a comprehensive manual which you will read as you go along the course. Both the deep and navigation dives are mandatory, but you can choose the remaining 3 dives based on your preference; your instructor will be happy to advise you. Commonly chosen dives in Egypt include drift dives, boat dives, underwater naturalist dives, fish identification dives and peak performance buoyancy to mention just a few.
Each chapter of your manual ends with a knowledge review which you should complete and discuss with your instructor before executing the dive. Your instructor will then brief you on the pros and cons of carrying out such a dive and the procedures you will be following during the dive.
And the best part: no formal classroom sessions and no exams!
On completion of this course you will be certified to dive to a maximum depth of 30m with another diver with a similar or higher level certification. It’s time to enjoy Dahab to the fullest and “Go places, Meet people and Do things underwater”.
