Advanced Open Water Diving (AOWD)

The course is intended for those who have already tasted the depths of the depth and want more … It is intended for all those who are not enough for 18 meters of depth to dive from a boat on sunken ships at night …

The prerequisite for joining the course is OWD Course . The minimum age of participants is 15 years.

At the course, you will first get to know the depth of the dive and underwater navigation. Then there are three dives from specialty types:

a dive into a wreck, a night dive and a dive from a boat. After the five dives you will be more experienced, in the water you will feel more comfortable and in the diving you will simply enjoy, as you will better understand the underwater environment.

With your partner, you can safely dive to a depth of 30 meters.

Only with these skills will you be able to effectively help riders in distress, you will gain more confidence in yourself and become more independent under water.

In the course you will learn new techniques of self-rescue and rescue of the co-pilot in a crisis. At the course we will prepare you to be able to prevent potential accidents or how to handle them properly if they already happen … The rescuers are no longer focused on themselves, but learn to consider the safety and well-being of other divers. The course is also a fun way to build your own trust. For many students this is the most interesting course.

The Rescue Diver course has been followed by a follow-up diving course, at least twenty confirmed dives, and a first-aid and rescue course that can not be older than two years (PADI does not recognize the First Aid Automobile Exam).

PADI Master Scuba Diver

You are becoming a better and better diver. You’ve done all the courses, including Rescue Diver, but you will not enter professional waters and maybe become a PADI Pro. You like to dive, you enjoy it, under the water you feel home. Perhaps I would have done 5 specialty courses and become Master Scuba Diver.

The PADI Master Scuba Diver certification means that in PADI’s educational system you have reached the highest recreational diving category. It shows that you have a great number of dives and experiences in various diving environments.

You need to have a Rescu Diver course, at least 50 dives, and you have to be at least 15 years old. After the Master Scuba Diver Challenge, your diving training can be continued in a professional way.

As PADI Master Scuba Diver, you are well prepared to attend PADI Divemaster.

A diving course for all those who have a professional ambition for work in a diving club, club or diving center. The PADI DIVEMASTER diving course is also recommended for all those who do not have professional ambitions, but you want to improve your diving skills to the fullest and be as independent as possible.

PADI Divemaster is the first professional dive category to employ as an instructor assistant and a diving guide in the diving center.

If it’s been several months since you last dived, it’s a good idea to consider a diving course. You will get an opportunity, to restore your theoretical knowledge and practical skills. In conjunction with an instructor, you will repeat chapters from diving theory and repeat all major exercises at sea (emptying the mask, exercising from airworthiness, fraternal breathing …) and then performing two more dives under the professional guidance of a diving instructor. In particular, the diving course is recommended for all those who have not dived for a long time but are on a trip to where they intend to dive.

Courses for kids

For children up to 10 years of age, a bubblemaker course is appropriate. For children between the ages of 10 and 14, there is PADI’s childrens starting and follow-up course for the Junior Open Water Diver. But beware: children between the ages of 10 and 14 who have completed the Junior Open Water Diver course may dive to a depth of 12 meters and only accompanied by an adult.

DIVING LOCATIONS

The Fiesa Reef is definitely the most popular among Slovenian divers. There are several reasons: the dive is interesting and suitable for beginners as well as for more demanding divers. Access to the entry point is very easy. The ridge begins at a depth of 4 meters, about 100 meters from the coast. It is best to start the dive at the Fiesa Hotel, continue to the right side along the ridge past the rollers and dice. At about 100 bars, it’s time to turn around and start a return. How do you know you’re at the starting point? A large hose that will end just below the ridge will alert you to this.

 

The Fiesa is suitable and highly recommended for night dives, as you will surely see permanent residents of the ridge: sea horses, octopuses, cuttlefish, squid …

View of the underwater world through the lens.

The ridge under the Piran Church is definitely our most popular destination – we perform most of the dive courses here, because low water, good visibility and rich flora and fauna provide us with good working conditions. Usually, the dive begins at a point called the “sandbox”, because it is an area of approximately 20m2 that is free from large stones, sandwich and has the actual shape of a sandbox. Located at a depth of 4 meters.

 

From this point, we head north until we get to a depth of about 12 meters – there ends the stone bottom and a sandy bottom begins, which is not so interesting. So we turn left and swim along the stone edge towards the direction of Piran. After about 20 minutes, we turn to the left and reduce the depth, then turn left again and start swimming back towards the boat. The whole dive due to the low depth can be greatly extended, but the ideal dive time is between 30 and 45 minutes. Because of the calm sea, good visibility and low depths, the dive is highly recommended for beginners.

REEF PUNTA PIRAN is the most viable part of the Slovenian sea due to the fauna and flora itself. Due to the geological structure itself, it offers safe shelter to most of the living species living in this part of the northern Adriatic. On the punt can be performed 2 dives, namely the north and south sides of the ridge. This is very convenient, because in the case of strong winds from the north, a peaceful dive can be carried on the south side of the ridge – and vice versa.

 

The maximum depth on the south side does not exceed 12 meters, while the dive on the north side is at a depth of 5 to 22 meters.

 

On both sides, we begin to sink to the left, then after about 20 minutes or at the pressure of 100 bar we turn and start to return.

The dive is for beginners as well as for better divers.

WRECK KEC or in other words, DTM is a military transport ship of II. of the World War, submerged on the Piran – Strunjan route.

 

It is 2,9 km from the Madonna Cape in Piran, in the north, 16 degrees east. Very little is known about the wreck itself. It is known that it belonged to the Italian army and that it was probably sunk in the spring of 1945. The iron ship’s shell is 47.3 m long and 6.10 m wide; it has three smaller engine hubs and two rudders.

 

It lies on deck, on a sandy bottom, 24 meters deep, slightly inclined to its left side and with its right side sludge into sludge. In 1984, Zvone Kralj, the leader of the Piran aquarium, drove an archaeological diving team to the boat, which reported that there were scattered ammunition, sacks filled with some white matter and containers in the vicinity of the ship and below it.

 

A few days before the first visit to the archaeological diving team, somebody drove the ship’s cannon, whose footprint at the bottom could still be seen, and the second cannon, with the intervention of Zvonet Kralja and the police, came to the Naval Museum in 1985. For the Maritime Museum, the diving team raised a parachute glider with a parachute, an ammunition box, and cutlery and a muffler. The team was localized, photographically documented. The shape of the ship and its cross section were graphically documented by sonar.

Maona is immersed in the direction of Savudrija – Piran, with its bow facing Piran. Inside, it’s always full of loads – most likely it’s bauxite. Maona is the type of vessel most conveniently described as a “trailer”. This is a non-powered vessel used to carry different loads.

 

Also, Maona Rossa is a boat that has been reigning since the time of the Second World underwater world. World War II. It was probably submerged due to an underwater mine – as there are 3 similar mines in the vicinity of Maona, located at the bottom and measuring about 1 meter in diameter.

The most famous deeper underwater area of the Slovenian sea is the larger hills in front of Piran, about 300 m NW from the Cape Madona, with the greatest measured depth of 38.0 m, also called the “underwater Triglav”. This point is also marked with a 2500 kg heavy concrete pyramid from 11 June 2000, on which a metal plaque with the inscription “The deepest point of the Slovenian sea” is affixed and a Slovenian coat of arms with Triglav is drawn on its head.

 

The dive is performed primarily for the needs of a follow-up course or a Deep Diver specialty. Due to the complexity of the dive (depth) and the high traffic in the area, the dive is recommended only for experienced divers. At the bottom there is a muddy bottom and a memorial from the independence war – a pyramid that served as a road barricade. It’s a memorial board on it.

 

Due to traffic and occasional currents, we recommend that the dive be performed exclusively from a boat.
