The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course is designed to advance your diving and can be started straight after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your knowledge and scuba skills through different Adventure Dives.
Each Adventure Dive you undertake may credit towards the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. Please contact us for further information.
If you are already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two additional Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
There is a long list of Adventure Dives to choose from and along with your instructor, you will choose dives that best fit your interests and our local environment. There are two required dives for the Advanced Course (Deep and Underwater Navigation), there are then 3 more Adventure Dives to choose, these could include Night Diving, Fish Identification, Drift Diving, Wreck exploration and many more!
The course takes 2-3 days to complete, however we are able to tailor the course to suit your schedule, whether that be intensive consecutive days or spread out over a longer period of time.
The cost of the course includes your Adventures in Diving manual and slate, which are yours to keep after the course is completed, the certification, and the use of the diving equipment for the duration of your course.
