PADI Advanced
Open Water Diver Course Dive Adventures From $595


Exploration, Excitement, Experiences – That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

What will you learn?

You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives. During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time. The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.

The PADI Adventures in Diving certification will extend your diving range to 30m (21m for Junior AOW, divers under 15). Best of all, NO THEORY LECTURES and NO EXAM. During this course the emphasis is on practical application – classroom sessions are kept to a minimum and the focus is on developing your in-water skills.

The course includes:

  • PADI Certification Card
  • The Adventures in Diving Manual
  • 2 boat trips to Shark Bay’s World Heritage listed waters – a total of 5 dives
  • All air fills, gear rental, and certification costs covered by us – no hidden extras!!!
