PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course
Continue your SCUBA education and certify to reach greater Depths and diversity in your Diving with the PADI Advanced Open Water Course.
Eligible for certified PADI Open or Junior open water divers, the Advanced course takes one into 5 specialised “Adventure” dives and greater confidence to handle different diving scenarios.
Apart from the 2 mandatory dives : a Deep dive to 30 meters and the Advanced Compass Navigation dives, students have the option of selecting 3 special Adventure dives from a range of dives.
Choices could be made between Night Dive, Wreck Dive, Enriched Air (Nitrox) dive, Underwater photography / videography, Peak Performance Buoyancy dive, Project AWARE dive to the Cavern dive or Drift dive. There’s even a dive where one can learn to handle the underwater scooters (Diver Propulsion Vehicle) !
There is no exam for the PADI Advanced Open Water Course, just reviews of the 5 chapters in the course manual with the Instructor.
The PADI Advanced Open Water diver certification allows deeper diving and may also be required for certain SCUBA diving destinations or dive sites that require a greater level of experience as opposed to the Open Water diver skills.
