You know how to dive, now discover the why – and how to protect and sustain our reefs and oceans.
Your PADI Open Water course taught you how to dive.
This special PADI AWARE Advanced Open Water Course teaches you the why – and the reasons, ways, means and dive skills to protect and sustain our reefs and oceans.
And you’ll earn your Dive Against Debris Specialty certification too.
The PADI Advanced Open Water course is a lot less studying and a whole different kind of fun to your PADI Open Water course. Only available at The Dive Bus, this special version of the PADI AWARE Advanced Open Water course course will:
advance your diving skills and confidence
give you a greater understanding of our oceans, our impact and ways to do something about it
through the above, you’ll:
gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to reduce YOUR impact on the ocean
be confident and competent to turn every dive you make into a Dive Against Debris
get more out of every dive you make
Just like the regular PADI Advanced Open Water course, you don’t need to be an “advanced” diver to take the course.
Each of the 5 Advanced Open Water Diver training (“Adventure”) dives on the AWARE Advanced Open Water course expands your scuba skills and builds your confidence in a bunch of different ways – with plenty of fun thrown in, too.
The Deep and Navigation dives are PADI-required training dives. The remaining 3 Adventure dives focus on the knowledge development, dive skills and supervised experiences to be an AWARE Diver, respecting and protecting the ocean on every dive you make – and as part of your daily life:
Peak Performance Buoyancy:
Until you get your buoyancy right, you’ll be wasting air, making shorter dives, damaging the reef and upsetting other divers – and generally not having as much fun as you could be. Let us help you out with some skills and weight adjustment. You’ll be amazed at the difference…
Learn about what you’re seeing underwater. We guarantee it will enhance each dive you make once you know what you’re looking at. Remember: anyone can spot the big stuff; smart divers know how to spot the smaller stuff.
Dive Against Debris (DAD):
Taking care of the ocean isn’t only about removing trash from the reef. It’s about understanding the harm it causes – and stopping it getting there in the first place.
