The Advanced Open Water course is a great way to build on what you have already learned in your Open Water course. You will develop new capabilities and be introduced to new diving activities whilst increasing your confidence in the water. And no, you don’t have to be an advanced diver to take the Advanced Open Water diver course – it’s designed so you can go straight into it after completing the PADI Open Water Diver course! This is a great way to gain more diving experience while continuing to learn under the supervision of a PADI Instructor.
