PADI Advanced Open Water Courses in Bunaken and Manado
Are you an Open Water Diver or above and thinking about taking your next PADI Course? Did you know that at Murex Manado we offer the full range of PADI Advanced Dive Courses up to Divemaster and Assistant Instructor level?
Taking your next course doesn’t mean that you’ll miss out on phenomenal diving, we combine our PADI dive courses with the best dive sites in the Bunaken Marine Park and Manado Bay. Read on to find the right PADI course for you while you are visiting North Sulawesi…
PADI Advanced Open Water
Take the PADI Advanced Open Water with us, expand your knowledge and you’ll get certified to dive to 30 metres which will open up a host of new dive sites to you worldwide. You’ll experience diving Manado Bay and Bunaken Marine Park and you’ll be introduced to a plethora of Indo-Pacific marine life.
The PADI Advanced Open Water has no formal classroom sessions, so unlike your Open Water Course you’ll just read the relevant 5 chapters in the book (and complete a short quiz) that relate to the 5 awesome dives you’ll be making. Deep diving and underwater navigation are mandatory but the other 3 dives are for you to choose. The Advanced Open Water will develop your diving skills and make you a more competent diver – and it’s a lot of fun!
PADI Rescue Diver
Are you already an advanced certified diver? The next step for you is the PADI Rescue Diver Course – ask any diving professional and they’ll tell you this was the most challenging but rewarding course they took.
Not only will you learn how to rescue divers underwater and on the surface, you’ll also learn about how to prevent accidents from happening in the first place, self-rescue techniques, how to carry out underwater searches and how to handle both tired and panicking divers.
The PADI Rescue Diver Course will broaden your diving perspective from beyond yourself to those around you. This is also an essential course for anyone who has their sights set on becoming a PADI Divemaster or Instructor.
To take the PADI Rescue Diver Course you’ll need to have a current First Aid and CPR Certification. If you do not have this yet, it’s easy to add one day to your program and take the Emergency First Responder course with us here in Manado.
PADI Nitrox Specialty
Do you want to stay longer at deeper depths? When you are diving Bunaken’s amazing walls you’ll be mesmerized by the abundance and diversity of the marine life on show and you’ll want to stay “down” as long as possible. When you are diving with air, 79% of your breathing gas is Nitrogen which limits your dive time. By increasing the % of oxygen (over 21%) you’ll accordingly decrease the % of Nitrogen so you can stay for longer – that’s the basic science behind diving with Nitrox.
No matter what certification level you are now there is always a next step to take and more to learn to develop your skills. If you are not sure which course is for you – or if you’d like to make a reservation or enquiry about any of our PADI Dive Courses, contact us on: [email protected]
We look forward to welcoming you to North Sulawesi soon.
