PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

Duration: 3 days (includes 1 fun dive + 5 adventure dives)

PADI - The Way the World Learns to Dive

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is your ticket to dive deeper and have a lot of fun along the way! By gaining experience of five different types of diving, including a deep dive and a navigation dive, you demonstrate the knowledge and skills to be able to dive to 30 metres, and you get the card to prove it! When booking the full Advanced Course with us, all five dives are taken over a two-day period.

To certify as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you must take part in a deep dive and navigation dive but the three others are free for you to choose. Perhaps you want to improve your buoyancy, practice diving in currents, dive on a wreck, learn about fish and corals or even try diving at night - all these, and many more, can be chosen in resort when you talk to your instructor.
