Advanced Program

During the Advanced Program you will have the chance to try out 5 different specialties. You will complete theory, pool and six open water training dives in order to get a better understanding for each specialty area. The specialties include:

  • boat diving
  • deep diving
  • navigation
  • night diving
  • perfect buoyancy


We often say this program packs about 2 years of diving experience into just one weekend. You get to sample 5 different specialty programs as each dive can lead on to a specialty course in that area. Your confidence increases considerably as each new diving environment is explored and carefully supervised by your experienced instructor.
