ADVANCED OPEN WATER COURSE
Once you try diving you want to do it more and more, develop more skills and get good knowledge about this world. In this course you will learn techniques to improve your diving style, fill yourself with knowledge in such a way that you feel more comfortable and safe with yourself in the water element.

We always say that diving is equivalent to flying, but you have to learn to do it well to be able to enjoy it to 100.

In this course you will develop 5 specialties of which two are mandatory; deep diving (30MT)/flexibility under 15 years old/, and underwater navigation, the following can be chosen by you as long as they are available and authorized by the Galapagos National Park.

We recommend that our students always choose these; current diving, multilevel diving, buoyancy, fish identification or boat diving. The topography and conditions of Galapagos are exactly adapted to be able to develop these specialties and therefore you can improve your skills as a diver. That is to say, to do a specialty in currents in a place where you do not find it, you do not complete your satisfaction as a student.
