PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course

About the Course

Join the Dive 2000 team to take your diving to the next level with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course.  This popular course is designed as a follow on from the PADI Open Water Diver Course to provide training and experience in specialised diving opportunities. It certifies the diver to dive to 30m and is the minimum qualification required to dive between 18-30m.

You’ll experience five different types of dives including: Night, Navigation, Deep and 2 other specialty dives Peak Performance Buoyancy & Underwater Naturalist (Marine Life ID). You’ll dive Sydney by day and by night, by boat and by shore. During your course you’ll gain more experience, and become a more comfortable diver making your diving experiences much more enjoyable.

No matter your level of diving experience this is the perfect next step in your diving education. Even experienced Open Water Divers are finding they can be excluded from deeper or more challenging dives as they lack the necessary qualification rather than experience to undertake the dive. Taking this course will help avoid the disappointment of being excluded from some dive sites during your future dive activities or holidays.

The dives you do on this course can count as your first dive towards a specific PADI Specialty Course. Remember that once you have completed five PADI Specialty Courses and your PADI Rescue course you will qualify to apply for your PADI Master Scuba Diver Certification, the highest non-professional qualification in recreational diving.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course is fun and educational and will broaden your diving knowledge making you a safer diver.
