The SSI Advanced Open Water course aims to give you minimal classroom time and maximum dive time!

The SSI Advanced Open Water Diver course is designed to build onto your fundamental dive skills learnt during the Open Water Diver course, whilst introducing you to new underwater activities in new environments - so you don’t have to be an experienced diver to take this course.

What will you learn?

With your dive instructor you’ll complete 5 adventure dives based on specific underwater environments and activities. You will complete the following 5 adventure dives:

  • Perfect Buoyancy
  • Navigation
  • Waves, Tides & Currents
  • Deep Diver
  • Marine Ecology

You have the best possible opportunity to enhance your SCUBA experience whilst having maximum FUN – after all, the Adelaide Scuba instructional team wants to pass on the best of their own knowledge to you!

The standard course schedule:

  • Thursday evening: Orientation and Registration Session
  • Saturday: 3 shore based dives focusing on building the foundations of your advanced SCUBA diving
  • Sunday: 2 boat dives, generally departing from the Adelaide Scuba boat deck

Things you need to know before you start your learning:

  • You must be already qualified as an Open Water level Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organisation). Be 15 years old (12 for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver).
  • You will fill out the Dive Medical Questionnaire before starting the course. This will tell you whether you are fit to dive or whether you need to be approved by a doctor. If you need to see a doctor for clearance, please make sure that you do so before the course commencement date. Our staff can answer any questions you may have about seeking out the dive medical, however it is essential that you have obtained clearance prior to starting your course. Adelaide Scuba do not provide refunds for a failed medical after you have attended the class orientation and registration.
  • A minimum age of 12 years applies. Every student under the age of 18 needs to have a parent or a guardian sign a consent form (available from the dive centre). Students younger than 15 years old will attain a Junior Advanced Open Water Scuba Diver certification on completion of all performance requirements.

You will be provided with your Advanced Adventurer online theory, 2 boat, 3 shore dives, and certification package.
