Dive Further With The Advanced Course
Utila is home to a huge variety of dive sites, which makes the island a great place to take your Advanced Open Water course. From deep dives (to a maximum of 100ft/30m) such as Black Hills or wreck dives where you can explore the famous Haliburton wreck, to drift dives exploring the overhangs of Blackish Point or the caves and caverns of Airport Caves.
Navigation on the reef can be a little difficult without some training, so a required part of the Advanced Open Water course is to learn more effective underwater navigation techniques. Another required dive for the Advanced course is the deep dive. Ever thought about diving at night? The Advanced course will take you into the different world of night diving!
Taking an Advanced course is all about gaining more dive experience with the expert tutelage of one our instructors. By the end of the course you’ll feel more comfortable and you will be a more experienced diver able to get more from your dives because you will better understand the underwater environment.
