I. Knowledge Development

Upon enrolling in the Advanced Open Water Diver program, you will have immediate access to PADI eLearning, which allows you to complete the theory portion of the training through interactive multimedia modules, including videos, quizzes, and animations, from the comfort of your home and at your own pace.

II. Land Sessions

Most adventure dives require specific skills and knowledge; therefore, it is essential to introduce these skills on land before diving to ensure that divers understand and are able to complete them in the water.


These dry sessions may include learning and practising specific diving techniques, equipment use and maintenance, and emergency procedures. By completing these dry sessions before the in-water activities, divers will understand the fundamentals; and be prepared to execute the dives safely.

III. Open Water Dives

During your course, you will complete five dives: navigation, deep dive, fish ID, night dive, and peak performance buoyancy. We are flexible with the sequence planning of these dives, as it may depend on the weather and water conditions.
But usually, on the first day, we will start with the peak performance buoyancy dive as we believe buoyancy is the most important aspect of becoming an excellent diver.
After that, you will complete a navigation dive, where we teach you essential skills you will use during the following sessions. On the second day of your course, we will start with the deep dive; to ...

Advanced Open Water Diver

As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, you have discovered the beautiful and unique world that lies beneath the surface. However, diving is not just about admiring stunning sights and sounds; it also offers a wide range of experiences that can be unlocked with the Advanced Open Water Diver course.


This course, which consists of 5 dives led by an instructor, will broaden your perspective of the underwater world by introducing you to new disciplines and depths. The course is designed to help you develop new skills that make diving more rewarding and offer new activities and options for exploring the underwater environment. You'll have the chance to discover dive sites you've not seen before, gain experience with different dive gear, and try new types of diving. The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course will take your diving experience to a new level.

You will learn to be more independent and sound in your decision-making as a diver, which pushes you to develop your abilities, skills and confidence. You find out more about yourself – where your interests lie so you can get more out of diving. You'll have 5 Adventure Dives to practise navigation, try deep diving, improve your buoyancy, trim & propulsion techniques, identify your favourite fish, and go on a night dive.


By successfully completing this course you will have the knowledge and confidence to dive beyond 18 metres all the way to 30 metres, anywhere on the planet. 

Why is this course unique ?

Unlike most dive centres, we are not rushing to finish courses; we like to take time with our students. We will not combine the adventure dives; but complete separate dives for each one. As a result, your course will take a minimum of 3 days to complete, with five total dives during your course with us. ​


Furthermore, we provide our students with speciality dive gear inspired by technical diving, which will enhance safety, comfort, and performance. This gear is not typically available to entry-level divers, so it gives our students an edge over others and prepares them for the more advanced levels of scuba diving. Our exclusive training program is helping our students to achieve their full potential as divers and providing them with the foundation for their diving progression in the future.

Why train with us ?

We are highly skilled and experienced professionals with a background in cave and technical diving. We've used our expertise to develop an exceptional course beyond the traditional boundaries of standard training.


We prefer an adaptive teaching approach, which prioritises student-centred learning and adjusts instruction to meet each student's unique needs and abilities. With this strategy, we can identify and address any difficulties or areas of confusion you may experience and provide the support and guidance you need to be successful.


We believe that every individual should receive proper attention during their training; therefore, our courses have a low student-teacher ratio of 3:1 maximum, ensuring that you receive personalised instruction throughout the program.





MAX. 30M


Deep Dive

Plan and execute a non-decompression dive up to 30 meters of depth. Your expected bottom time is limited on this dive so precision of planning plays a crucial role and execution is key.

Fish ID

Identify the fishes and other species you see during your dives by taking notes and sketches and using our fish ID slates.

Peak Performance Buoyancy

We will work on improving your buoyancy and trim, refine your equipment configuration and introduce you to advanced propulsion techniques.

Night Dive

Meet creatures you won’t see during your daytime dives, learn how to communicate with dive torches and enhance your navigation and team diving skills. All your previously learnt skills will be tested on this dive.

Navigation & Planning

You will expand your knowledge on complex compass navigation, gas planning and matching procedures, both will play a major role in dive planning.
