PADI Advanced Openwater

Welcome to the PADI Advanced open Water Course. As a certified diver, you’ve probably already discovered that scuba diving is more than just getting wet. It is a wide range of activities and interrelated skills that create adventure, fun and recreation for people with wider interests. You may also have a growing interest in enriched air diving which is becoming popular these days, maybe a desire to explore new shipwrecks or just dive that little bit deeper.

There are many advantages to the PADI Advanced course some being:

  • 5 more dives under the direct supervision of a PADI professional instructor to master your skills
  • The opportunity to experience some of the desirable under water activities such as photography, multilevel dives, wreck dives or night dives.
  • Further awarded license to dive to a maximum depth of 30 meters/100 feet, exposing you to many more dive sites that otherwise the professional scuba dive centers would not have allowed you to explore as an Open Water Diver.
