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.

Course Content

In this course you get to choose from 15 different adventure dives. The options are wide-ranged from digital underwater photography, wreck diving, night diving, peak-performance buoyancy and even more.

What you learn

You will 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 scuba diving in the deep. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and other references. The knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you want to have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.


The ADVANCED Open Water Diver course can be completed in a minimum of 3 days. If you should be short of time, we recommend you to participate in the PADI eLearning Programme. With this you acquire the theory with PADI learning texts and videos on your Computer or Tablet and can start to dive as soon as you arrive. Please schedule a minimum of 3 – 4 days for your ADVANCED Open Water Diver course in any case. We recommend you to make an online reservation and avail a discount via the booking form on our website.
