The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course with Oceandivers

Exploration and excitement are what you will experience during the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. And you don't have to be “advanced” to take it – it is designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course will help you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your Oceandivers PADI Instructor. This 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.

You'll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to:

  • Underwater navigation
  • Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet)
  • An introduction to three more Adventure Dives of your choice


The Fun Part: Your Choice

One reason you'll love the Advanced Open Water Diver course is that you and your instructor choose from about 10 types of Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can try your hand at Digital Underwater Photography, Wreck Diving, Night Diving, Search and Recovery and much more.
