Course Description

Our PADI Advanced Open Water Course 

You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There is two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.
During the Deep Adventure Dive, 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.

The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and much more.

Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.

Once your PADI Advanced Open Water completes your next step is a PADI specialty course and you’re ready to take even a further step, you can easily upgrade your skills and take your diving to a higher level– PADI Rescue Diver

The local government will utilise these funds to finance a number of high priority conservation programs in the area, including patrols and enforcement to abolish destructive fishing practices such as blast and cyanide fishing, village improvement programs within the park, collection and disposal of plastic and other wastes entering the park’s waters, marine conservation education of village children and adults, and reef and mangrove rehabilitation. Tickets can be purchased through Sta. Filomena Marine Sanctuary in Alegria or at Alegria Dive Resort. We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation with this entrance fee system.
