Advanced Open Water with Speciality


The PADI Advanced Open Water course aims to expand on your existing scuba diving skills, whilst introducing you to some new and exciting types of dives. You will complete five dives covering varying specialised areas, including two key skill dives: Navigation and Deep. Along with your Instructor you will decide on the additional three dives, which may cover subjects such as Wreck diving, Peak Performance Buoyancy or Multi-Level diving.

On completion of the PADI Advanced Open Water course you will be qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 30 metres (21 metres for Junior Advanced Open Water).

How much will it cost and what do I need to bring?

Students need to bring their swimming gear and their own mask and snorkel. In addition, we recommend bringing appropriate clothing to wear in-between dives, such as a coat and hat/gloves in colder weather, or a hat and sunglasses in warmer weather.
