The PADI Advanced Open Water course is designed to improve your diving skills and give you added confidence in various diving conditions. Unlike the basic open water course, it stresses practical application rather than theory. This means only one classroom session, one pool session and five open water dives. This course is ideal for the diver who has just passed his/her open water course or for those certified divers who wish to further their diving experience.
