PADI Advanced - course description

The PADI Advanced course consists of 5 ‘adventure’ dives. Each dive has a theory chapter related to it with a quiz. This course is great fun since you have the choice of which ‘adventure’ dives you want to do, depending on what interests you!

To achieve the Advanced certification, 2 of the 5 training dives are mandatory: Deep dive and Navigation dive.  In the navigation dive, you will learn to navigate underwater both naturally and with the use of a compass.  In the Deep Dive, you will learn how to dive deeper focusing on safety, how to plan your dives as well as observing the various changes that occur at greater depths.


The remaining 3 training dives, are of your choice! We offer a variety of options here, with plenty of exciting dives to choose from; perhaps perfecting your buoyancy, learning to identify fish, safely dive in currents or a choice of many more.


Find something you really enjoy? The adventure dive you chose for the course, can also credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver course. We can, for example, certify you as a PADI Advanced Diver and PADI Nitrox Diver with 6 dives in total.

After successful completion of the PADI Advanced Open Water course, you will be qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 30 meters.
