What do you do  after your open water course??....continuing education.

Get certified to 30m, Dive Rottnest Island and go night diving.
Become an "Advanced" diver!

The RAID Explorer 30 course is an exciting fun program, designed to increase your skills and understanding of the important core areas of diving.

If you hold an open water certification from another agency, you are also ready to join us. This course is largely practical, so you have more time to enjoy your journey and practise the skills your Instructor will teach you.

The course will take you on 5 different dives so you can expand on the knowledge and skills mastered during your Open Water course.

  • Great new dive spots!
  • Practice buoyancy of an underwater ninja .
  • Understand navigation using a compass and natural navigation.
  • Experience the tranquility of night diving. See the phosphorescence shimmering green around you in the night and sparkling off your mask as you turn your head or wave your hands. A good spot to hunt prawns and crabs later.
  • Plan and perform a deep dive off Rottnest Island on our boat.
  • Gain further knowledge of the boat operations and learn the negative entry technique, it's perfect for diving live from a boat when there's a current. 

Lots of diving.
