ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER GOLD Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.

The Go Dive GOLD Advanced Open Water Diver course is an entirely boat diving course (no lugging equipment into and out of shore dives).  The course is designed to help you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water.  This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.

You'll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to two core and three elective dives over one triple dive day on Go Dive’s boat to dive in the Moreton Bay Marine Park, and one double dive day utilising Scubaworld’s boat to dive on the EX HMAS BRISBANE:

Triple Dive Day aboard Go Dive’s boat - Dive Quest

  • Underwater Navigation - Core Skills Dive - Ever wondered how an experienced diver finds their way around a dive site so easily? On the Underwater Navigation dive you will learn some of the secrets of navigation, including compass use and using the natural environment to assist you. You will never be lost again!!
  • Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB) – Learn about use of DSMBs, including inflating and swimming underwater towing your inflated DSMB at the surface, as well as surfacing and retrieving DSMBs.  This adventure dive will also credit you with Dive 1 of the DSMB Course should you later elect to gain a DSMB specialist certification. 
  • Dependent on conditions – either a Drift Dive or Peak Performance Buoyancy Adventure Dive
    • Drift Dive - Enjoy a comfortable, easy relaxed dive, avoiding long swims. Scuba dive alongside amazing marine life which spends their days drifting in the currents. Our local area sometimes is affected by tides and currents - this is a great way of experiencing the correct manner to dive in these conditions.
    • Peak Performance Buoyancy - Master your buoyancy and glide effortlessly, conserve air and ascend, descend, or hover almost as if by thought. Mastering neutral buoyancy is one of the most difficult, but most important skills a scuba diver can achieve.

Double Dive Day aboard Scubaworld’s rigid inflatable boat

  • Deep Dive - Core Skills Dive - Experience the excitement and wonder of what lies below 18 metres.  We will dive to the keel of the wreck of the EX HMAS BRISBANE.  Once certified, you with then be able to explore previously unseen deeper sights to 30 metres.
  • Wreck Dive – Conduct a familiarisation dive around the wreck of the EX HMAS BRISBANE learning wreck diving finning techniques while navigating around the wreck.  This adventure dive will also credit you with Dive 1 of the Wreck Course should you later elect to gain a Wreck Diver certification.      

Optional Upgrade:

  • Advanced Open Water Course with Nitrox Course Piggyback - For just $250 extra, Why not complete the Nitrox course while doing your Advanced Course and do all five of your course dives on Nitrox.  You will then not only be Advanced certified but be Nitrox certified as well.
