PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

The second level with PADI is the Advanced diver certification.  It is made up of 5 Adventure dives focusing on specific and valuable skills to improve your diving confidence and ability,  We generally conduct all 5 dives over 2 or 3 days.

Mandatory for the full qualification are the Deep dive (more than 18m) and Underwater Navigation building on the basics you learnt in your Open Water Course.  You then choose 3 more from the list of 20 or so listed in the PADI Adventures in Diving manual.  Choose carefully!  Our tip to help you is to do something that you cannot do by yourself - or something that will develop you as a diver.

Due to our location there are some Adventures which are not practical or possible here; we don't have any Caves, and the water temperature is a balmy 28-30°C so no Ice here and not very comfortable to be in a Dry Suit.  On the other hand we have some great underwater Night life.

And you don't have to do the entire course, we can take you through selected individual Adventures, logged to count towards the Advanced Certification.

PADI elearning is also available for this course.
