PADI Adventure Diver / PADI 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. This is a great way to log more dives while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. It’s designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course so you don’t have to be “advanced” to get involved. 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 two of which are mandatory and three others that you can choose from a variety of options.
- PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent certification from another training agency)
- All students must complete the PADI Medical Questionnaire prior to participation.
- Minimum age is 12. Children between the ages of 12 & 15 will be awarded the PADI Junior Certification.
The course consists of a knowledge development session, skills practice & Open Water dives. The emphasis during this course is placed on practical application rather than long classroom based presentations, you learn about diving by diving.
Knowledge Development is based on a self-study method, allowing you to study in your own time, at your own pace. Home study is backed up by an academic session with a PADI Instructor, to ensure full understanding of diving theory.
