If you are an Open Water Diver, you qualify to join our Advanced Adventurer Course, it does not matter whether you have minimal or lots of diving experience. The Advanced Adventurer course is 100 percent practical, with no written exam - only Knowledge Reviews on each Adventure Dive covered during the course.
This program allows you to experience five different open water dives from five SSI Specialty programs without requiring you to complete the entire Specialty.
The Pro-Dive Adventure Diver course commences with a registration night 6:30pm the prior Friday.
We will go over your knowledge reviews, fill in your paperwork, size you up for wetsuits and other dive equipment, you may require.
Saturdays Dives (Shore dives)
Dive 1- Perfect Buoyancy
The first dive teaches you the skills and techniques needed to maximise your dive experience, increase your comfort in the water, save on air, control your body underwater to get the most from your equipment.
Dive 2- Underwater Navigation
You will learn how to use a compass and natural navigation techniques, it just takes a little practice and confidence. Soon you will be estimating distances, basic navigation patterns and how to leave and return to a designated exit point.
Dive 3- Enriched Air Nitrox
Diving with enriched air can increase your no-decompression limits, increase your safety, and reduce the required length of your surface intervals when compared to air.
Sunday Dives (Boat Dives)
Dive 4- Deep dive
Many exciting dive sites are located in deeper water. Without proper training, this kind of diving, puts you at risk. Today is your chance to reach 30 metres in a controlled manner, that will give you the ability to safely and comfortably plan and conduct dives beyond Open water diver certification.
Dive 5- Wreck Dive
Many of the ocean's best dive sites have artificial reefs, or wrecks that have sunk throughout the ages. We have the former scuttled warship "ex HMAS Adelaide" to dive on!
On this final day, you will learn the skills and knowledge required to safely scuba dive above and around, these underwater treasures.
You have the option of including the Enriched Air / Nitrox course when you do your Advanced Open Water course. The Enriched Air Course starts with theory and you will complete two of your dives using Enriched Air / Nitrox.
