ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER
Water diver certification or an acceptable equivalent.
After you've earned your Open Water diver certification, you're ready for the Advanced Open Water Course.
The Advanced class provides an excellent opportunity to expand your
diving skills under professional, experienced supervision.
At South Beach Diver and Surf, we offer years of combined diving experience
to make your Advanced class a real learning adventure.
Please don't think you need to be an experienced diver to take this class. We believe all divers should take this class as a continuation of the Open Water class. You will learn how to Navigate properly ,perfect your buoyancy, learn about the marine life and fragile ecosystem, safely dive on a wreck and go beyond the 60' limit of the Open Water class.
The class features two core dives: Deep Dive & Navigation Dive.
In addition, you must complete three elective dives which typically include a Wreck Dive, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist or a Night dive. If you would like a night dive as a part of your class you will have to be available for a Wednesday night as that is when the night dives are held.
All the dives you do in this class counts toward the correlating specialty class. For example, when you do the Navigation dive in the Advanced class, you will only need one more Navigation dive to get the Navigation Specialty. With 5 specialties you can become a Master Scuba Diver!
Miami is considered to be the "Wreckreational" Dive Capital of
There are over 75 wrecks in the Miami area that comprises the largest
artificial reef system in the world.
So, we feel that a concentration on wreck diving is paramount.
Miami also enjoys close proximity to the Florida Keys, particularly John Pennekamp Underwater State Park.
We should all take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy such a wide variety of underwater life.
How can we appreciate what we see if we don't know what to look for or how to identify it when we see it?
For this reason, we like to incorporate the Underwater naturalist elective dive into the Advanced class.
This class can be started on any Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday.
We start with the Navigation and Peak Performance Buoyancy dives as they are shallow and are a great way to get you re acclimated to diving. The remaining three dives will be held over two days and can be done most days of the week and weekend. All dives are boat dives unless inclement weather forces us to relocate the dives to a secondary site as needed. We have the most flexible schedules available. When you book this class on line, you are only booking the first day of diving. Please indicate in the notes section your two other available days and we will confirm a schedule for you.
Reservations are required.
