PADI Advanced Open Water

Your PADI Advanced Open Water with Warnakali in Nusa Penida

If PADI Open Water training teaches you how to dive safely, it is mostly focused on the diver himself. In particular, how to behave underwater and have the right reflexes. The PADI Advanced Open Water course will complement your diving training by focusing on the underwater world. And therefore allow you to explore more fully the possibilities it offers. Read here how we manage this course at Warnakali diving center in Nusa Penida, Bali.

Exchanges with your instructor

You will exchange a lot with your instructor to discuss your experience as a diver, as well as your expectations. With him, you will develop and design yourself your training. You will choose out of 15 different types of adventure dives to complete your course. For example, you can try deep dive, night dive, sidemount configuration, peak performance buoyancy and many more.

Nusa Penida is the perfect place for this training. Why ? Because the sites are famous for their beauty, but also for their technicality. Warnakali instructors are familiar with all Nusa Penida dive sites. They will allow you to get the best out of your training.

What will you learn during the PADI Advanced Open Water course ?

When you passed your PADI Open Water, you started a real passion for scuba diving. Therefore, like most of us, the desire never stops leaving you to discover even more about this world. But also to progress. For the PADI Advanced Open Water training, you will plan your learning path with your Warnakali dive instructor.

Here, less theoretical courses, learning is indeed based on an exchange between enthusiasts. Once you have read the corresponding chapters in the book, the briefings will be an opportunity to make a quick review of your knowledge before each dive.

Concrete feedbacks

The full debriefings with your instructor will allow you to get more insights of each chosen adventure dive, with concrete feedback. During the dives you will practice playful exercises, putting into practice new techniques. Or demonstrating in a simple way, certain concepts of scuba diving. An effective way to continue your exploration of Nusa Penida dive sites by combining fun, learning and safety.

Five adventure dives

There are two required dives : Deep and Underwater Navigation. But you will choose the other three, for a total of five dives.

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

The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.

What scuba gear will you use ?

Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass and dive knife or dive tool. You’ll also use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. For example, you’d obviously need a sidemount configuration during the Sidemount Adventure Dive.

Your Warnakali Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as dive light for night diving or lift bag for search and recovery diving.

Warnakali “plus” : dive agains debris

During your PADI open water you focused on your comfort and safety. As a logical continuation, your PADI advanced open water course will open your eyes to the world around you. This is a special time to learn how to clean without damaging the flora and fauna. That’s the purpose of our Dive against debris certification training.

This training includes a theoretical part and a sea dive, incorporated into the training dives. During this dive, we will clear the site that we have adopted through Project AWARE : Gamat Bay.

Warnakali “plus”: adaptive support

Since we invite ourselves underwater, we are an integral part of the diving environment. Complementing your PADI Advanced open water with Adaptive support training will be the ideal complement to becoming a responsible diver. Thanks to a theoretical part and an always fun moment, shared in the pool, it will allow you to be aware of the techniques and solutions for diving with a disabled partner. But also to go beyond the preconceptions and questions concerning all types of handicap in diving. This sea dive will also be part of your 5 certified dives.

Beyond the satisfaction of becoming a PADI Advanced open water, you will be proud to become a responsible diver, respectful of the world around him. A full member of the Warnakali family !
