The PADI Advanced Open Water course is the natural progression for most divers following their Open Water course. For most, the thrill of underwater exploration is too much to contain, and you'll soon realize that there's so much to see below 18 meters. The advanced course will provide you with the knowledge, skillset, and ability to venture deeper into the oceans, to 30 meters.
The best bit about the Advanced Open Water is that you don't have to be an advanced diver to take it. The whole idea of the course is to take you further in your diving, so you can even book straight after your Open Water Qualification.
You'll be trying out a range of specialties of your choice on the course, as well as taking two compulsory qualifying dives, Deep Diving and Underwater Navigation. These specialties are designed to build on your confidence and ability while you get to explore new waters.
Once you pass your qualifying dives, you'll be able to dive to depths of 18m in conditions equal to or better than you qualified in.
Courses start on Saturdays and run weekly (with Thursday evenings also available). There is no set time frame in which you need to pass - the instructors will let you know when you're ready for your qualifying weekend!
Courses start every Saturday and will run weekly (with the option to train on Thursday evenings every fortnight).
