Once you are a certified Open Water 20 diver, you will be competent to dive with a certified dive buddy to a depth of 20 meters/66 feet. To consolidate the skills you have learned, do some additional dives after you complete the course. Join your local dive club where you can dive socially within your training limits and gain valuable diving experience.
Your dive center or instructor can give you advice on the next logical training option that matches your interest area. It may be shipwrecks, night diving, underwater photography, or even travel to exotic locations. Your dive center will also have plenty of opportunities for you to participate in a wide variety of diving experiences. While you will have loads of fun on dives up to 20 meters/66 feet, you will find a wealth of additional diving opportunities at deeper depths at night or in overhead environments like caves and wrecks. The possibilities to enhance your dive experience through additional training with your dive center and instructors are almost endless.
