PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is the next exhilarating step for certified divers looking to expand their horizons and enhance their scuba skills. Building upon the foundation laid in the Open Water Diver course, this program offers a diverse and hands-on approach to learning through a series of exciting adventure dives.

The course includes five specialty dives, each focusing on a specific aspect of diving. Two of these dives — Deep and Underwater Navigation — are mandatory, providing you with essential skills for exploring greater depths and navigating with precision. The remaining three dives are your choice, allowing you to tailor your training to your interests and local diving conditions.

Adventure dive options span a range of specialties, from Night Diving and Wreck Diving to Underwater Photography and Fish Identification. Each adventure dive not only hones your abilities but also introduces you to different facets of the underwater world.

What sets the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course apart is the emphasis on hands-on experience. Rather than classroom sessions, you’ll engage in practical learning during the adventure dives, guided by our experienced PADI instructors. This approach not only builds confidence but also adds an element of excitement to your learning journey.
