PADI Advanced Open Water

Are you ready to take the next exciting step?

The PADI Advanced Open Water course will expand your experience levels into actual diving circumstances.  Ever thought about diving on an awe inspiring ship wreck or learning how to take pictures of the things you see?  Then this course is for you, it takes the skills learnt in the PADI Open Water course, develops them and then moves you into new and exciting areas of Scuba Diving. The focus in this course is “thinking like a diver” where we move you from a novice diver into a more rounded experienced diver.

This certification will also qualify you to dive to an incredible maximum depth of 30m (under 15’s 21 meters). This is so desirable for seeing much more and opening the ocean up to you.

What will I need to do?

The Dives:

We prefer to take you away for a weekend and complete your qualification at Capernwray, this is in our opinion the best dive site in the UK. During the weened you will get a fantastic experience, have a great social weekend, meet more of the team and more like minded divers. The choice is of course yours, you can choose another venue or split the dives, the main consideration is we need you for two days. We will do a maximum of 3 dives per day to give you the best dive experience possible, the dives will be briefed first with reference to the eLearning you have done. The instructors will involve you in the dive plan as much as possible.

How about including a PADI Diver speciality and making the PADI Advanced Open Water course much more exciting?  If you want to see how then please choose our PADI Advanced Open Water Plus package.
