Advanced Open Water Diver

This course helps you get more out of diving by introducing you to new types of scuba diving adventures. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course.

You choose from 5 dives from the list. Two of which must be:

  • Underwater navigation 
  • Deep diving  (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet)
  • AWARE- Fish Identification
    Boat Diving
    Diver Propulsion Vehicle use
    Drift Diving
    Dry-Suit Diving
    Multilevel and Computer Diving
    Night Diving
    Peak Performance Buoyancy
    Search and Recovery
    Underwater Naturalist
    Underwater Photography
    Underwater Videography
    Wreck Diving


  • You must already have the PADI Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another training organization) and be 15 years old (12 for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver).

Skills Covered

The knowledge and skills you get in the Advanced Open Water Diver course vary with your interest and the adventures you have, but include

  • Practical aspects of deep diving
  • Physiological effects of deeper scuba diving.
  • More ways to use your underwater compass
  • How to navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time
  • How to better use your dive computer and electronic Recreational Dive PlannerTM (eRDPTM)

In Colder Waters...

As we conduct our courses in both warm and cold waters.....

Please be aware that in colder waters i.e. Scotland (and Britain as a whole), it is recommended to dive wearing a drysuit (with a thermal undersuit).

We can include the Drysuit Specialty with any other course at a discounted price.
