PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.......

That's what the PADI Junior/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 whole wearing £1,600 worth of Scuba and Drysuit equipment.

This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI instructor.

his 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.

Move up and experience real adventure with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. As you step beyond the PADI Open Water Diver level, you make five dives and have the opportunity to try some of diving’s most rewarding and useful specialty activities, such as deep diving, digital underwater photography, wreck diving and much more. These skills make diving much more than underwater sightseeing. Plus, the Advanced Open Water Diver course takes you one step closer to Master Scuba Diver – the ultimate non professional certification in recreational diving.

With your PADI Instructor you complete the deep and underwater navigation Adventure Dives. These dives boost your confidence as you build these foundational skills. Then, you choose three additional dives from more than 15 Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can go diving at night, check out the local wrecks in the area or even fly through the ocean on a diver propulsion vehicle – all during your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course.

This is the time to learn more about the different types of diving and environments available to you, in an informal atmosphere.
