Advanced Open Water

PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course

A great stepping stone & often a prerequisite at some diving destinations!

As a certified scuba diver you’ve already experienced the thrill of exploring parts of the underwater world, but know there’s more to discover. Whether you’re looking for new adventures, to improve your scuba skills, or both at once, taking another PADI dive course will help you gain more confidence and meet more dive buddies.

The PADI Adventures in Diving program offers both the Adventure Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver certifications. Complete any 3 Adventure Dives to earn your PADI Adventure Diver Certification. Complete the 5 following Adventure Dives to earn your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification:

Why PADI Advanced Open Water Diver?

By participating in PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Programs, you will gain more experience whilst learning under the expert guidance of a PADI instructor. After your 5 dives, you’ll have more confidence in the water and simply enjoy scuba diving more, because you have a better understanding of the underwater environment. You will become an Advanced Diver in all senses of the term!

Not only is this an advantage for your experience and safety, but it can also be a requirement, in many cases, for diving certain destinations or special dive sites. Many destinations or dive operators will require you to present your Advanced Diver certification in order to be able to participate in certain dives. Prepare yourself and don’t ever get disappointed by not being able to dive that wreck or special deep site! We offer the perfect conditions for the Advanced Certification, one of the most fun dive programs you can complete while on vacation.
