Advanced Open Water Diver
Red Sea Diving • Take Your Advanced Open Water Diver Course in the Crystal Clear Red Sea • PADI Courses • Boat Diving in Egypt
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course can be taken consecutively with the PADI Open Water Diver course, and many of our students opt for this route in order to complete they course during their holiday diving in Egypt. It usually takes two to three days to complete. The Advanced Open Water Diver course is designed to broaden your skills by introducing you to new activities and is a great confidence boost. The course is made up of five PADI Adventure Dives with knowledge reviews on each. You will need a PADI Adventures In Diving crewpack which are available from Red Sea Diving priced £75 (including certification fee of £32 otherwise payable upon successful completion of the course). The Underwater Navigation dive is one of the two compulsory dives, building on your compass-reading skills. A Deep Dive is also mandatory, where you will be asked to plan and execute a dive, to a maximum depth of 30 metres. You may then choose three Adventure Dives from the following:
- Multilevel Dive
- Search & Recovery
- Nitrox Dive
- Underwater Naturalist
- Boat Dive
- Drift Dive
- Digital Underwater Photography
- Peak Performance Buoyancy
To undertake the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver you must have achieved the PADI Open Water Diver qualification and be at least 12 years of age. Don’t forget, to take advantage of our online discounts you will need to make an online reservation in advance. We don’t ask for payment up front, or even a deposit – just settle up with us when you arrive at the resort.
We will need to ask you to complete a health questionnaire prior to diving. Some medical conditions (particularly those of the heart, chest, sinuses, eyes, ears and claustrophobia) would compromise your safety underwater and, unfortunately, render you unfit to dive. If you suffer from any existing medical condition, this need not be an automatic bar, but if you do have any concerns it would be a good idea to visit your local GP before flying out. If you do suffer an existing condition, we may need to ask you for a doctor’s letter confirming your fitness to dive. Red Sea Diving are, of course, happy to arrange a consultation for you at the resort, but you may wish to deal with this beforehand to avoid any disruption to your diving in Egypt.
You will also need to ensure that you are covered for scuba diving under the terms of your travel insurance, as scuba is excluded under some policies. Columbus cover scuba diving as standard up to a depth of 30m.
Online Price: £190 + crewpack/certification fee
