BE AN INDEPENDENT DIVER
ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER
NEW PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course
The Thinking Independent Diver
The purpose of Thinking Like a Diver in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver program is to build upon the procedures and principles divers learn in their entry-level course.
Through out the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course, our instructors will be working with you, expanding your thinking as a “seasoned diver”, preparing and executing your dive plans.
We are helping divers to visualize what they need to do before, during and after the dive, evaluate with student divers on what actually happened throughout the dive – this enable student divers to comfortably learn about task-loading and becoming safer divers with a broad understanding of their diving objectives.
All these realistics training objectives will prepare you to dive independently with your buddy and develop your awareness for your surrounding and giving you a stronger understanding of what can affect your dives, your dive equipment and the environment, preparing you for a smoother transition to a PADI Rescue Diver in the near future.
Step 1 – Theory Lesson
There are two ways to prepare yourself for your first scuba diving theory lesson. You can either sign up for online with PADI (at additional cost) or collect your manual from our dive centre and complete reading prior to your class.
We would suggest that you collect the manual instead of the online version as it is easier to read the manual (harcopy version) then the online version.
For those who have not been diving for a while, you can sign up with PADI Reactivate. This is an interactive program (for either iOS or Android Tablet) and you can sign up with PADI directly. The PADI Reactivate Touch program is recommended for divers that prefer a more interactive way of learning.
Classroom session are conducted on any Monday from 6.30pm to 10pm at our dive school
Step 2 – OPTIONAL POOL REFRESHER
If you have not been diving for a while, you are welcome to sign up for a refresher pool prior to the dive trip itself. It is recommended that any divers who have been inactive for a period of 6 months to attend a refresher session.
It is also good to get use to the equipment prior to your actual PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course.
Orpheus Dive is the only PADI Dive Centre that maintains both Jacket BCD and Rear Inflated BCD as rental inventory. If you are keen to improve your buoyancy, speak to our Instructors about the difference between Jacket and Rear-Inflated BCD

Step 3 – OCEAN DIVES
When you are done with your theory and/or your optional pool refresher training, it is time to decide where you would want to go to complete your 5 required ocean dives.
You are required to complete the compulsory Adventures in Deep Diving, Adventures in Underwater Navigation and 3 other Adventure Dives. The other 3 optional adventure dives will depend on the location you will be heading to.
Orpheus Dive offers many different packages catering to your budget and also your need for comfort and experience.
Local Diving Course – Designed for divers who wants to obtain their certification without leaving the country. The visibility around Singapore water is not the best in Asia, with an average underwater visibility of about 3 to 4 metres. The 5 required ocean dives are conducted over two seperate weekends on Sunday mornings. This experience would not be as great but it is possible.
Budget Tioman Trips – Designed for divers who wants to be trained by our experienced instructors but do not wish to have all the comfort and ease of diving. Please note, such packages requires almost a total 10 hours per way. The chalets in such packages are generally quad sharing (two twin sharing beds) in a “rustic” wooden chalets. DO NOT EXPECT ANY FORM OF SERVICES from the chalets in this package.
Bali Weekend Getaway – Designed for divers who can take 1.5 days off from work. Bali as a diving destination is renowned and the bungalows we used are designed for comfort for 2 divers. All we have gotten as reviews from divers are “Value for Money”, “Great Diving”, “Much better than the tiring Tioman Trips” and “Extreme luxurious trip at affordable prices”.
Liveaboard Diving from Singapore – For divers who want the comfort without taking off from work, another option we provide are liveaboard departing from Singapore. Whilst liveaboard is not as comfortable as our Bali trips, it is significantly much better than the budget Tioman trips as well.
