ADVANCED ADVENTURER COURSE
Have you always wanted to know all the fish in the area? How about drift diving? Here's your chance because you can sample three dives of your choice, get a taste of what you like, and feel more at ease in the water, strengthening your underwater skills and letting you enjoy scuba diving more than ever.
That’s what the SSI Advanced Adventurer course is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your SSI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives.
What are the costs? 560.- US$
What will I do?
You will plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep dive and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives for the course and you get a sixth dive for free.
During the Deep Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you to navigate better using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – buoyancy control, fish identification, drift diving, underwater naturalist and many more.
