Advanced Open Water

P.O.A


Exploration, Excitement, Experiences... they’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about.  And no, 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.

The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water.
