Advanced Navigation

The advanced course is designed to build upon the skills you learned in the PADI Open Water Course. There are five modules completed over two days which are designed to introduce you to several different aspects of diving. All our dives are conducted in Dry Suits.

There are two compulsory core dives:

  • Deep dive which will expand your knowledge and develop your understanding of Decompression Sickness & Nitrogen Narcosis Underwater and Underwater Navigation.
  • There are then 3 elective dives. A number of options are available depending on conditions and location of the course. Once you have successfully completed this course, you will be certified to dive to a depth of 30 meters (100 feet) and undertake such diving activities as you have learned on the course.

This costs an additional £100.00 saving £50.00 over doing the Drysuit course seperatly. The cost includes the PADI  E-Learning and certification fee's. This can only be booked and paid for on weekend once you have passed the Open Water Qualifying Dives.
