The PADI Advanced Open Water (AOW) Diver Certification is available to all Certified PADI Open Water Divers or equivalent and extends your confidence and enthusiasm for diving.

One thing about the AOW course is that you don’t have to be an advanced diver to participate – it’s designed to advance your diving.

With the AOW, you get to choose most of the dives. A Deep dive and a Navigation dive are mandatory, but that still leaves you to choose the three others which will complete the course after a browse through the PADI Adventures in Diving manual which you’ll receive when you join the course, you’ll have a better idea of the options available to you.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification is accepted worldwide and allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 30 metres, plenty deep enough to experience the fun of diving!
