PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

Course Information

Ready for your next adventure? The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver introduces you to a range of new diving possibilities and extends your depth down to 30m. The course consists of 5 open water dives, 2 of which must be a Deep Dive and a Navigation Dive. The other 3 dive can be chosen from the following:

Wreck Diver Computer Diver
Enriched Air Diver Digital Underwater Photography
Drysuit Diver Search & Recovery
Peak Performance Buoyancy Fish Identification
DSMB Diver Night Diver

If you've never dived in a drysuit before we strongly suggest one of the 3 dives you pick is the Drysuit dive. For this we will get you in the pool first in a drysuit to familiarize yourself with the suit first before going out into the open water.

Once you have decided on your 5 dives, you will have to study the necessary chapters in your Advanced Open Water Diver manual and complete the knowledge reviews. Your instructor will then go through the necessary theory with you before each dive on the Open Water Weekend.

The 5 dives completed during your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course all count towards their respective PADI Specialty Courses. If you decide to continue on and complete the respective specialty your adventure dive will count as dive one and will be deducted from the cost of the specialty course.
