Advanced - Achi Divers

 

It’s called the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver because you advance your diving knowledge and skills.

Description

Exploration, Emotion, Experiences

Once you have earned your open water diver certification, you are ready to take the advanced open water course. The Advanced class provides an excellent opportunity to expand your diving skills under professional and experienced supervision. We believe that all divers should take this class as a continuation of the Open Water class. Don’t think you need to be an experienced diver to take this class.

The class features two main dives: the deep dive and the navigation dive. Additionally, you must complete three elective dives which may include a wreck, peak performance buoyancy, underwater naturalist, or night dive.

Miami is considered the “Wreckreational” diving capital of the world. There are more than 75 shipwrecks in the Miami area, which comprises the largest artificial reef system in the world. So we believe that concentration on wreck diving is paramount.

John Pennekamp Underwater State Park. This marine sanctuary has been an exclusion zone for more than 50 years and, as a result, is home to a wide variety of underwater life. Everyone should take this opportunity to witness such a diversity of marine life.

“Excellent experience! Arturo was our diving instructor, and he made the whole PADI certification process so much fun. Going in, I was a bit nervous. However, Arturo displayed a total mastery over all scuba related techniques, which really reassured me.

Additionally, he was extremely encouraging and attentive – making sure we all learn while having a good time. I highly recommend working with Achi Divers! You will not regret it!”

 “Had the best time of my life. Mark is an excellent instructor, very patient during my open water diver course. He helped me get over my initial fear in the ocean, kept reassuring me and built my confidence up. I saw sharks, stingrays, barracudas, huge lobsters, jelly fish, a giant green eel, and tons of unique fish. It was amazing to say the least.
Thank you Achi Divers for making this the best birthday ever. Please know, It’s a new shop so all the gear is either new or in like new condition. They practice social distancing. Everyone purchased their own mouthpiece, wore masks on the boat and everything was wiped down afterwards. Always felt completely safe. I’d give ten stars if I could.”
