Advanced Open Water Dive Course


“Advanced Open Water Diver” program – PADI Two day Adventure Diver program

Become a more comfortable, competent and experienced as an ocean diver.

What’s it like to dive to 30 metres from a boat? ? Why can’t I navigate correctly underwater? What sort of fish is that?

You’ll learn the answers to these questions and more by doing the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. It introduces you  the basics of 5 great scuba diving specialties:

  • Peak Buoyancy Control – learn how to control your buoyancy throughout your dive.
  • Navigation – learn how to find your way around underwater.
  • Underwater Naturalist – discover and learn about unusual critters under the sea
  • Boat Diver – experience boat diving onboard Omega II, and
  • Deep Diver –  go Scuba Diving on the Ex-HMAS Adelaide

Your instructor will show you what you need to know during a pre-dive briefing then it’s time to go scuba diving.

The best part is, it’s fun!
