PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

While the OW Course initiates you to your equipment and the basic principles of scuba diving, this program elaborates on many of these teaching you primarily about your environment through a greater sense of awareness.

Consisting of 5 dives over 2 days of training you will conduct 2 core immersions learning deep diving and navigational techniques whereupon you will be able to choose to study 3 further specialized dives involving topics that particularly interest you.

These can include peak performance buoyancy, drift diving, naturalist, multilevel/computer, wreck(*), night diving(**) and U/W photography(***) just to mention a few.

The best way to improve underwater skills and confidence beyond entry level.

After your five dives, you'll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water and simply enjoy diving more because you better understand the underwater environment.
