different options: Fish Identification, Boat Dive, Drift Dive, Enriched Air, Multilevel Dive, Night Dive, Peak
Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist, Underwater Navigation, Underwater Photography, and Wreck Dive.
How it works:

Classroom sessions, five open water dives, scuba equipment rental, manual,
Additional equipment needed for certain dives, such as for underwater photo.
One great way to do the Advanced Open Water course is while on a liveaboard trip. But if
you prefer a land-based option, it’s just as much fun. In this case, some dives may be offered from shore and some
from boats, depending on the circumstances. For example, Night Dive is easiest done from the beach, while Deep Dive
is easier from a boat.
