The Advanced Open Water Diver (AOWD) course is where you really start to have some fun and improve all the skills you’ve learnt so far, as well as expand your diving choices. It’s really practical and mostly spent in the Okinawa seas doing what we all want to do – diving. The course’s five dives include two mandatory dives – Deep Dive (30 m/100 ft) and Navigation Dive – and three optional ones, such as boat diving, improving your buoyancy skills or night diving, which you can choose in discussion with your instructor, Jan. All the theory is learnt during the surface intervals and from the course manual.
Our typical course schedule is
Day 1: two dives at Maeda Point
Day 2: three dives at Manza
- If you’re traveling on a tight schedule, or can’t complete all of the requirements for the Advanced Open Water Diver certification in time (due to weather, health or personal ability), then complete only three of the five dives and earn the PADI Adventure Diver rating in only one day.
- As a certified Adventure Diver, you can upgrade to Advanced Open Water Diver level in just one day. Please keep in mind this does depend on your ability, and you may need some more training.
After becoming an Advanced Open Water Diver you’re eligible for the Rescue Diver Course where you’ll learn how to prepare for dive emergencies, assist other divers with problems, as well as how to prevent them, and generally gain more confidence and problem solving ability underwater.
