PADI Advanced Open Water


So, you have your Open Water Cert and are ready for a new challenge? The Advanced Open Water Diver course provides the opportunity to try some of diving’s most rewarding and useful specialty activities—such as deep diving, underwater photography, wreck diving and much more! You’ll make 5 dives to learn these new skills, plus, the Advanced Open Water Diver course takes you one step closer to the Master Scuba Diver qualification—the ultimate non-professional certification in recreational diving.


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 or even fly through the ocean on a diver propulsion vehicle – all during your Tweed Sea Sports Advanced Open Water Diver course.

  • have a PADI Open Water Diver qualification (or qualifying certification from another training organization)
