ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER Continue Your Adventures

Take your diving to the next level...

Get a taste of new adventures and enjoy scuba diving more than ever. Over 2 diving days you will build your scuba skills and gain more confidence underwater. 2 of the dives are mandatory: a Deep dive to earn your 30m depth rating, and an Underwater Navigation dive to improve your compass skills and help ensure you don't get lost on your dives. The remaining dives can be chosen from a large list of optional Adventure Dives, providing a range of choices that allows us to plan the course to reflect the best of what Victorian diving can offer.

3-Stage Process:

THEORY & EQUIPMENT - PADI's eLearning Online program is designed so that you can learn the academics at your own pace when it is convenient for you. You complete the academic section of your course online, however your Instructor will be happy to help you with any theory based questions you may have.

SHORE DIVES - The first dives of your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course will take place off the shore. Included in all AOW courses run by Aquatic Adventures is a short skill review session which will be part of the first dive. This is to ensure that both you and your Instructor are aware of where amongst your basic skills there is a room for improvement. Your Underwater Navigation dive will be included in your Shore Dives.

BOAT DIVES- Your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver will also comprise Boat dives. These will include your Deep dive, to 30m, and at least one other dive to make the best of the conditions at the time.

  • Minimum age to take the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course in Australia is 12years old.
