PADI Advanced Open Water Course 2024

Our PADI Advanced Open Water course is the most thorough and progressive PADI Advanced Open Water Course available in the dive industry.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course introduces divers how to be more aware and how to participate in bigger, better dives, utilize more precision techniques and expose you to multitude of different diving environments.

Our PADI Advanced Open Water Course training dives are designed to allow you the opportunity to gain experience under the direct supervision of one of our PADI Instructors.

What’s unique about our Advanced Open Water course is that we also allow you to complete your class in a Drysuit if you would prefer to stay warmer and more comfortable than you would in a wetsuit.

Minimum over the age of 15yrs.

Junior Advanced may also be conducted to a maximum depth of 70′ for students under the age of 15.

Upgrade to PADI Advanced + Drysuit for only $550 + HST.

Additional Costs:

Scuba rental equipment, boat charter fees and park entry fees are not included.

PADI standards now suggest that all students have an smb (surface marker buoy) and a whistle. We’d also suggest for safety a reel to attach to the smb to deploy in an emergency situation from depth. All students must have a Dive Computer for the Deep and Wreck Dives, if you don’t own one, one will be provided for you. Students will also need a minimum of 2 lights (1 primary and 1 backup).

PADI Drysuit Specialty Option includes use of drysuit, undergarment, larger fins, but does not include any additional rental equipment as many of our divers already have begun to purchase some or all of their dive gear package.
