PADI Advanced Open Water

Take the next step!

After you’ve done a few dives and gained some diving experience, you probably want to expand your diving skills and take the next step: The Advanced Open Water Diver. To enroll in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course you must be a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or equivalent from other training organization.

The Advanced Open Water Diver requires you to complete five adventure dives that will help you optimize your diving skills. Two of these are specified by PADI: Deep diving and Navigation. During the deep dive at a maximum depth of 30m we will deepen your knowledge of diving physics and show you their effects on our bodies. Safety is especially important here. For example, you will learn how to install, check and use an emergency air supply underwater.

When navigating we do not only attach importance to the fact that you can operate the compass, but also particularly to the natural navigation, with which we find our way around in the Red Sea.

You are free to choose the three other adventure dives according to your preferences. Your instructor will be happy to help you choose. These dives can be credited towards special courses in these respective areas, such as the Deep Diver Speciality, you might want to complete later on.

Have you ever wondered what is going on underwater at night? Then “night diving” is just right for you. At our house reef there is a lot of activity at night with all sorts of creatures, which we rarely or never see during the day. With the help of our underwater lamps we experience something new during every night dive.

Another highlight here at Dive Point Red Sea is “wreck diving“. We are in the lucky position to be able to offer you several great wrecks almost right on our doorstep. For example, the Balena, a former safari boat, which lies in shallow water and offers an incredible variety of fish and soft corals.

If you like a bit of action, our Bonex scooters are ready for adventure dives! You’ll learn how to prepare and maintain underwater scooters and explore new and exciting sites with them.
