What is this course?
The course can be completed as soon as you qualify as an Open Water Diver – it is a great way to build you skills and confidence in the presence of and experienced instructor.
The course covers 5 dives building on what you have already learned in the Open Water Course – no exams however there are the mandatory knowledge reviews…this course is all about the diving.
Here’s how it works!
There are two core dives - Navigation and Deep dives – and as all the critters come out at night we will also do the Night Dive then two elective dives as selected by the group, choose from Wreck, Photography, Fish ID, Search and Recovery, Peak Performance buoyancy, Boat Diver and Naturalist or others as per the PADI eLearning modules.
What do you require?
Your own diving equipment would be ideal however we are able to provide rental equipment at the course rates or assist you in the purchase of your own gear. Please advise us when booking the course. If equipment rental is required please make arrangements prior to the weekend to have equipment fitted.
You will also need your own compass, torch, safety sausage, slate and glow stick to complete the course.
Time to go diving:
Prior to starting you need to provide copies of your course assessment either via email to us or bring them with you.
On Saturday we head out and do our first core dive – Navigation. Be that diver that knows how to use your compass and get yourself back to the boat! The next dive is one of your elective dives, followed later as the sun starts to go down we head out on the night dive.
Sunday…Let’s go on a boat trip! We all meet at a pre arranged location and board the boat. When we arrive, our first dive will be our Deep Dive. A 30 metre dive where your Instructor will show you how colours change and how pressure affects different things in different ways. Mind games may also be played – see how your reactions change in deep water.
The final dive of your course is your second elective dive. We then do a de brief on the way back to shore and get a group photo for the WADiverDave ‘wall of fame’.
