PADI Advanced Open Water
Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.
PADI Advanced Open water, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it. The course is designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course.
The course helps you increase your confidence and build skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt and continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI instructor. The course builds on what you’ve learnt by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun whilst scuba diving.
Adventures in Diving program offers both the PADI Adventure Diver and PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certifications. Complete any three adventure dives and 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 PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
