ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE PACKAGE – A COMPREHENSIVE 3 DAY PROGRAM
There are two ways to reach the advanced level. It does not matter if you have recently completed the Open Water Diver course or already have a few dives under your belt. Diving courses are there for you to gain diving experience and even better when done with a diving instructor.
The easiest way is the SSI Advanced Adventurer course (equivalent to the PADI AOWD). There you will do 5 adventure dives like such as: Deep, Navigation, Drift, Wreck, Buoyancy or Photography.
The more extensive training is the SSI Advanced Open Water Diver program. Each specialty course (except Nitrox) includes 2 to 3 dives and the academics can be completed in advance with e-learning. You will receive a certification card for each specialty course and once you have completed 24 logged dives you will receive the SSI Advanced Open Water Diver recognition card.
At Aloha Diving, all of our continuing education courses (Advanced Open Water Diver Course, Advanced Adventurer Diver Course) are organized to give you the best possible training, in the best possible locations around Phuket. With an unparalleled flexibility on our diving boat we can achieve that straightforward.

Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Advanced Open Water Diver Course
We teach according to the two largest diving organisations in the world SSI and PADI. But by far the intensity of the pool diving exercises, the length of the training dives, the good training level of our instructors and the small teaching groups are far beyond those standards.
Safety is the highest priority at Aloha Diving and therefore the surface interval is a minimum of 90 minutes.
We plan all our dives for a duration of one hour minimum. We do not have a dive time limitation. Therefore you can stay as long your air last (30 bar / 500 psi minimum pressure).
Sunblock, towel, swimwear, in low season it’s a good idea to bring rain wear and a warm jacket. Most things are included in our trip price. Soft drinks and beers are the only items you need to pay for. There is a limited supply and selection on the dive boats so please feel free to bring your own and store it in the icebox onboard.
Food is a mixture of Thai and Western (more Thai). Our boat can cater for vegetarian or vegan on special request. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements and we will do our best to provide you with meals to your liking.
