Move up and experience real adventure with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. As you step beyond the PADI Open Water Diver level, you make five dives and have the opportunity to try some of diving’s most rewarding and useful specialty activities, such as deep diving, digital underwater photography, wreck diving and much more. These skills make diving much more than underwater sightseeing. Plus you'll gain confidence and see what UK diving really has to offer the serious diver.
Choose Aquanauts for your course because:
With your PADI Instructor you complete the deep and underwater navigation Adventure Dives. These dives boost your confidence as you build these foundational skills. Then, you choose three additional dives from more than 15 Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can go diving at night, check out the local wrecks in the area (Plymouth has more per mile than almost anywehere else in the world) or even learn to use a drysuit (small extra charge) so that you can start gaining the skills to dive all year round.
