Advanced Open Water Certification



As a diver you are weightless and can move in all directions. You approach the freedom of a bird as you move in three dimensions in a fluid environment.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

Here at Sea to Sky Scuba in the Pacific Northwest we have a few adventure dives to recommend for you to get the most out of your advanced course while diving in our local waters of Howe Sound. Since we primarily dive from shore on one of the most bio-diverse coastlines in the world and with few daylight hours in the winter time, we recommend that you make up your additional advanced dives with your night, underwater naturalist, and peak performance buoyancy. During your night dive, you will experience diving during hours of limited daylight and become proficient at communicating using your underwater light. The underwater naturalist dive lets you discover the vast variety of wildlife that inhabits our coastal waters, while the peak performance buoyancy dive teaches you how to maintain good buoyancy and trim in order to avoid hitting or damaging the wonderful wildlife that you see.

During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of scuba diving to depths between 60 and 100ft. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

  • A compass (if you do not have one, we usually provide one with our regulator systems)
  • A cutting device (dive knife or dive scissors with sheath)
  • A Surface Identification Marker
  • A dive light
  • A dive computer or bottom timer/watch

Other items may be needed based on the Adventure Dives you choose to do. Check with the shop staff to ensure that you have all the right equipment to complete the course.
