PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

The Advanced Open Water Diver course is designed to build your diving experience and confidence in different subject areas under the watchful eye of your instructor. It is a good opportunity to sample the first dive of any specialties that might interest you. 

You will gain further knowledge in underwater navigation and deeper diving techniques. Both underwater navigation and deep adventure dives must be completed with an additional 3 dives of your choice. These could comprise of wreck, search & recovery and fish ID for example.

Advanced skills such as SMB deployment, gas management and planning are emphasized during training. I also encourage the use of a backplate / harness / wing set up.
