Service Description

Build upon your Open Water Diver knowledge and gain a new skill in one of the following speciality diver ratings: DSMB, Drysuit, Dive Against Debris or Peak Performance Buoyancy. *PADI Advanced Open Water* The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about advancing your skills and your depth rating down the 30m over 2 days of diving. You'll improve your knowledge using e-learning before we hit the water; it's full of great content, videos and can be accessed on any device (even offline). When it's time to hit the water, you'll complete 5 dives in total (the first dive of each respective speciality). Every Advanced Open Water diver has to do the navigation and deep adventure dives but the final 3 are often left to your choosing. If we've learnt a thing or two over the years it's that some combinations are better than others! We'll hope you choose the best ones with one of them being dive 1 of your chosen speciality course. These can include: Adaptive Support, Delayed Surface Marker Buoy, Dive Against Debris, Dry Suit, Night, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Search & Recovery, Rescue and Wreck Diver. For every specialty adventure dive you complete, you can earn credit towards the relevant PADI specialty certification. Whilst these are not the full specialities it gives you some solid experience, helps you improve your diving and allows you to try different specialities of interest. Remember these adventure dives to do not qualify you for respective limits / activities of these specialities. For example to dive to 40m you must complete the full PADI Deep Speciality course OR to dive regularly in a dry suit you must complete the full PADI Dry Suit Speciality course etc. If you enjoy these taster adventure dives then make sure you speak to us about doing the full speciality. 2 Day Course *Book your private guaranteed 1:1 session to improve your skills and choose your own spec's rather than a group choice* All equipment, materials and consumables are included. No hidden costs *Speciality Rating* You may be able to choose from DSMB, Drysuit, Dive Against Debris or Peak Performance Buoyancy. * Please note if you are not already Drysuit Certified then your 1 speciality rating will be the PADI Drysuit Course without exception. This is to comply with the industry standard changes that came into place in 2023.
