Advanced Open Water Course

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. One of the many creatures you will discover underwater
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.

Expand your diving horizons during 5 enjoyable dives in a course that provides a variety of options including night diving, wreck diving, photography, underwater naturalist and more!
You can do this course in three half days or over as long time as you wish. The two core dives that you must do are the deep dive and the navigation dive and three more adventure dives of your choice (further down below). If you dont have time to do all 5 you can do any of these adventure dives and we can sign them off for you.

Each adventure dive consists of reading the relevant chapter from the Adventures in Diving Manual and completing a knowledge review.  On the dive there may be some tasks for you to do to put that theory into practice so you can learn more about the topic chosen. PADI’s Advanced Open Water Diver program has something for everyone. You can choose between the following dives.


  • AWARE Fish Identification dive
  • Boat dive
  • Drift dive
  • Deep dive (compulsory)
  • Wreck dive
  • Underwater navigation dive (compulsory)
