Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.

They're what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don't have to be "advanced" to take it - it's designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course.

The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba 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 scuba diving.

The Adventures in Diving programme offers both the Adventure Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver certifications. If you complete any three adventure dives, you can earn your PADI Adventure Diver certification. If you complete your Deep Adventure Dive, Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive and three Adventure Dives for a total of five, you can earn your Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

Why Advanced Open Water Diver?

After your five dives, you'll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water and simply enjoy diving more because you better understand the underwater environment. This certification allows you to safely dive to a maximum of 30 meters.

What do I need to start?

PADI Open Water Diver certification (or a qualifying certification from another organisation).

Minimum age: 12 years old.

All equipment needed for any pool training plus all major items for the open water dives. Students are expected to own basic equipment (mask, fins, snorkel, boots and gloves) although these are available to hire.

Where can I go from here?

PADI Advanced Open Water Divers can enrol in PADI Wreck or Deep Diver Specialty courses and continue on to the PADI Rescue Diver course, which is probably the best course you will ever do.
