PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

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.

Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Speciality course you've already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you've earned credit for an Adventure Dive.

How do I begin?

Sign up for Advanced Open Water Diver Online – PADI's eLearning option – to get started immediately. The web-based system lets you learn about seven of the most popular Adventures Dives – including the required Deep and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dives, plus Boat, Night, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist and Wreck Adventure Dives. You study at your own pace through an easy to use, interactive program. You also have access to an online version of the Adventures in Diving manual and can complete sections for other Adventure Dives as directed by your PADI Instructor.

You can also choose to read the Adventures in Diving manual and watch the Adventures in Diving video. Stop by our dive centre to enrol in the course, get your materials and start learning. Your PADI Instructor will meet with you to schedule knowledge review sessions along with your Adventure Dives.

What's in the course?

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 – we usually teach Underwater Naturalist, Peak Performance Buoyancy and Wreck.

How long does it take?

The PADI Advanced Open Water course takes 2 days.The first day we do 3 shore dives in Agia Napa and then on the second day we do Deep and Wreck dives on the wreck of the Zenobia in Larnaca for more details contact us

What qualifications do I need?

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.

If you're already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

Once you have seen the Zenobia as part of your course you will want to explore further, so spend some time with us diving this magnificent wreck. Then think about some further training – your specialities in Deep, Enriched Air and Wreck perhaps – then you are well on your way to being a PADI Master Scuba Diver.
