Advanced Open Water Diver

Aiming for more and the desire for higher achievements is in the nature of humans. Going deeper in the ocean, exploring the reef longer and being able to take sharp underwater pictures makes a good diver, an even better one.

So your next step on the learning ladder, after receiving your Open Water certification, is the Padi Advanced Open Water Diver course.

Why choose Sunkissed Divers Okinawa

Our Advanced Diver course in Okinawa is designed to focus on the individual needs as no two divers are the same. Some might need to polish up their buoyancy and kicking skills, while others have to work on their breathing rate or knowledge of scuba diving gear. Our priority is you. The classes are held only in small groups, with no more than 4 students/ instructor with flexible schedule, giving you the attention you need. Our diving gear is well maintained and consists of world renowned brands well over the industry’s standard.

In case you need a free morning, let us know at the time of your booking and we can schedule dives during the afternoon as well.

Planned dive sites

For the first 2 dives, we recommend to visit  Maeda Point/Blue Cave or Sunabe Seawall . If the wind is too strong for the boats, then will visit Gorilla Chop in Motobu. You can also upgrade your dives to the Kerama or Minna Islands for an additional fee.

On the next day, we will choose a deeper dive site like Cape Manza, where you can experience diving in deeper blue waters, around 30-35 meters.
