Duration: 3 days (including 1 day diving prior to starting the 2-day course)

When you have achieved a minimum of 5 Adventure Dives in your own time, you are eligible to be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. You can complete these dives either separately or at different times, in different locations or all together over 2 full days accompanied by a PADI Instructor. When booking the full Advanced Course with us, all 5 dives are taken over a 2-day period. This is a great choice if you are looking to increase your capabilities and gain more experience in different underwater activities.

To be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you must take part in a Deep dive and a Navigation dive. You can choose 3 of the remaining Adventure dives with your instructor from the following:

  • Boat
  • Drift
  • Fish Identification
  • Multilevel and Computer
  • Night
  • Peak Performance Buoyancy
  • Search and Recovery
  • Underwater Naturalist
  • Underwater Photography
  • Wreck
  • Enriched Air Nitrox

The dives will be from boat and from shore and we do ask all guests to complete a day’s diving prior to starting this course. This is to check weights, buoyancy and equipment.  This is included in the cost . Adventure Dives give you a taste of the various specialty courses offered  and can even count as the first dive of that relevant specialty – taking you closer to become a Specialty diver!

You need to be at least 12 years old, a certified entry-level diver and fit for diving to be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. Any certified entry-level diver who is at least 12 years old may enroll in the PADI eLearning Advanced Open Water Diver online program.

How does it work?

After enrolling, PADI’s eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.

What else is required to complete the Advanced Open Water course?

After completing the online segments, you will then conduct the five course Adventure Dives at Kasai Village Dive & SPA Resort. These can be done over 2-3 days or mixed with fun dives during the time that you are here. Two of these are mandatory; the Deep Adventure Dive and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive. The other three dives that you will complete can be chosen from a wide range of Adventure Dives. We recommend Night Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist, Underwater Photo and Wreck.

How much does it cost?
