Advanced Open Water Diver

The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. Plus you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed so you can continue straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI instructor. This course builds on what you’ve learned, and develops new techniques and skills by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.

  • Private tuition available.
  • Multi-Course packages available.
