ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.

Why PADI Advanced Open Water?  

“Adventures in diving” is your first step beyond Open Water diver certification and is a vehicle to a wide range of activities and inter- related skills that create adventure, fun and recreation.
As an Advanced diver, you can dive up to 30m with a buddy and experience what few other people on this planet ever will!

What do I need to start?

Open Water Diver (or proof of equivalent rating from another recreational diver training organization with at least 4 Open Water dives).
12 yrs old    Jnr Adv Open Water.
15 yrs +       Adv Open Water diver.

What will I do?

An Adventure Diver is a person who has completed 3 Adventure dives.  This can count towards your Advanced Open Water rating.
Once you’ve obtained 5 Adventure dives, of which Deep and Navigation must be two, you can now qualify as a Advanced Open Water diver.
To become a Specialist Diver you need to complete two to three of the same Adventure dives (depending on which Specialty you choose.)

How long will it take?

Depends entirely on the student.  Once the course has started, it must be completed within a year.  It can be done in as little as two days!
How deep are the dives?
Your deep dive is between 22 – 30m.  Multilevel is 25m deep. For 12 – 14 year olds, the maximum depth is 21m.
How many dives must I do?
Five in total.  Deep & Navigation must be completed and a further three dives must be done, depending on the location

What will I need?

When doing the qualifying dives you will have to have your own wetsuit, mask, fins, snorkel, boots and weight belt. We will supply you with Cylinder, BCD and Regulator.

PLEASE Note! Qualifying dives are extra and priced differently depending on where you will be doing your qualifying dives. Qualifying dives can be done at local fresh water dive sites or on any of our coastal excursions. 

At our one-stop venue with a covered, heated pool, dive shop and lecture facilities you are guaranteed the highest standards and the best training through our professional PADI Instructors.
