Are you hungry for more, and do you have a desire to be more comfortable and confident in the water? Or maybe exploring wrecks has gotten your attention lately? Then the Advanced Open Water course is perfect for you. The best thing about this course: NO EXAM! It is literally just about having fun and exploring new areas of diving. The course consists of five dives like deep diving, wreck diving, navigation, drift diving etc. Your instructor will brief you on the theory before each dive and by completing this course The area of Taganga Bay and Tayrona National Park offers dive sites where all of these dives are possible, not only are you gaining new dive skills, you will also see tons of marine life while doing it. Tayrona National Park is a marine protected area which becomes clear as soon as you start your dive. The corals are different and in great shape, reef fish everywhere and a good chance of seeing turtles and dolphins – what's not to like?

On top of the supreme diving, Taganga is also the gateway to the famous Lost City Trek, beautiful waterfalls and will probably have you stay longer than planned with its contagious beach village vibe.

Location Taganga is an old fishing village located just 15 minutes from the big bustling Santa Marta. It is known to be a popular destination for backpackers wishing to stay close to the water, have a couple of drinks and dive in a relaxed atmosphere (of course not in that order). The main road along the beach, is filled with fishermen and local kids playing football during the day. In the evening, when the temperature drops, the restaurants, cafés and beach front attracts divers, hikers and backpackers alike. The many activities around Taganga and Tayrona National Park will keep you busy for days and are also the reason why many travelers end up extending their stay in this area of Colombia.

Introduction to course
The PADI Advanced Open Water course will get you even more comfortable in the water by simply completing five adventure dives under the supervision of a PADI Instructor. If you're looking to build your confidence and gain more experience, this is the natural next step on the ladder.
The course is designed so you can go straight into it after the Open Water Diver course. The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your diving skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun diving.
You'll alter your skills by completing 5 adventure dives that introduce you to:

- Underwater navigation
- Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 meters)
- A sample of 3 Adventure Dives of your choice

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 2 to 3 days depending on the students enrolled. 5 dives will be spread out over the available days. No more than 3 training dives will be conducted each day. To give you an idea of what to expect, see the itinerary below:

Day 1: Arrive and relax, start reading the chapters that apply to your course
Day 2: Reviewing of the chapters applying for the dives of the day. Advanced Open Water dives.
Day 3: Reviewing of the chapters applying for the dives of the day. Advanced Open Water dives.
Day 4: No diving day. This is your day to take your foot of the gas. You need to allow 24 hours on land, before leaving Taganga. If you are not leaving the area, we highly recommend that you go and use your new certificate, with some fundiving!
Day 5: Relax & check out. (Or extend your stay and go fun diving... some more!)

Taganga is nestled by the ocean. To transfer to other bigger cities, you need to travel by road or plane at heights over 300m of sea level. This requires 24 hours without diving, which is why we have added a day of "no diving" in the itinerary. If you are feeling active, talk to the dive center about snorkeling or other activities for this day of off-gassing.

Please note
Due to ocean and weather conditions, the itinerary can be subject to change.

Your Guesthouse
La Casa Felipe is your cozy home during your stay. This colourful little pearl has great communal areas, is filled with plenty of hammocks to hang out in and it is located just a five minute walk from the beach and the dive center. It is super clean and cozy, with the friendliest reception staff, who are happy to help you plan your onward travels, or trekking in Tayrona! If you prefer to cook your own food, there is a little communal kitchen. The French and Colombian couple that owns this cool little hostel in Taganga, offers tasty breakfast options and afternoon/evening meals at low cost. There's landry service and free WIFI.

Your room - Dorm accommodation or Private room.
You can chose between the very cozy private rooms or
a spacious mixed female/male dorm room, with 5 or 8 comfortable single beds. All rooms have private bathroom, fan cooling and semi-hot water for your shower (This you will realise is quite a standard for Colombia, but if you want a hot shower, you can take one at the dive center, where they will provide you towels after your diving for that exact purpose).

Lokaal vervoer

Getting to Taganga from:

Santa Marta Airport (SMR):
When arriving in Santa Marta International Airport you have two choices of transportation. The cheapest way to get to Taganga is by public busses, the first one leaves just outside of the arrival hall (there’s only one bus line leaving from the airport, so you can’t miss it) That will take you to Carrera 5 in the center of Santa Marta. From there catch any bus that says ‘Kra.11 Taganga” to Taganga. The journey takes around 30-40 minutes and will cost you around 1EUR. The busses run every 10-15 minutes from 06.00 to 21.00 (6 am - 9 pm)

The easier option is to take a taxi from Santa Marta Airport to Taganga. Remember to always negotiate the price before getting into the car to avoid misunderstandings. The ride should not cost you more than 35.000 pesos (10 EUR) during the day and 50.000 pesos (13 EUR) at night. We recommend this option after dark.

Cartagena or Barranquilla:
It is no problem to travel from west to east on the northern coast of Colombia. From Cartagena several minivan services will take you to directly to Taganga. They even offer hostel to hostel drop off and pick up. The journey from Cartagena takes around five hours and costs approximately 52.000 pesos (15 EUR) one way, from Barranquilla three hours and costs 35.000 pesos (10 EUR).


No meals included. Snacks on boat is included.
