The Junior Advanced Course is for kids aged 12 to 15. This course is identical to the Advanced Course but with a depth restriction to maximum 21 metres.

On reaching 15, this depth limitation is lifted allowing you to dive to 30 meters.

We run these courses all the time, so you are welcome to book your start date on any day that best fits in with your travel/holiday plans.

Please allow 2-3 days to complete the full course. It can easily be completed on a short break holiday, however please keep in mind that you must leave 18 hours between your last dive and your flight home.

"What does the course involve?"

This course is almost all diving and very little theory! The Advanced Open Water Diver Course is made up of 5 dives, the two core dives - Navigation and Deep, plus three more dives chosen from a list of elective dives.

Elective Dives: Wreck, Naturalist, Night (€15 extra), Fish ID, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Nitrox (€5 extra), Search and Recovery, Boat (€25 extra), UW Digital Photography (€25 for camera hire). The intention is to expose the student to as many different diving experiences as possible.

Theory for this course can be completed online prior to arrival. There is no exam and no confined water work.

This is a really fun programme incorporating new experiences and additional supervised time underwater. Successfully completing the more demanding tasks is also a great confidence booster.

If you have not dived for some time, then we do recommend you do a shake down dive with us first, to refresh your open water skills and get yourself well weighted in the water.
