PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver
Expand your skills - discover new things
With the PADI Advanced Open Water course, as an already licensed PADI Open Water Diver (or another organization) you can improve your skills underwater and make new interesting adventure dives such as wreck diving or underwater photography. As a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you will learn more about pressure and diving up to 30 meters deep as well as navigating underwater.
The PADI Advanced Open Water course consists of 5 dives:
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course takes 2 to 3 days and includes 5 dives. Of the 5 dives, 2 are adventure dives and 3 are free to choose.
Navigation dive: With the Navigation Dive you learn how to orientate yourself under water. There are basically two options. On the one hand, you learn how to use a compass under water and how to measure distances. But visual references also help you navigate underwater. We are very lucky that we usually have very good visibility, which will make navigating a little easier for you. This is a really interesting dive as you can guide your instructor through the dive site. ;-)
Deep dive: As a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver you can dive to a depth of up to 30 meters. This is probably the main reason why many choose the AOWD course. In this dive, we will show you the effects of underwater pressure on your body as well as what you have to pay attention to when planning a deep dive using interesting experiments.
Dives 3, 4 and 5: After the 2 mandatory adventure dives you can choose from a variety of adventure dives. We generally recommend buoyancy diving and a night dive. We are happy to advise you personally with us in the diving school to select the perfect dives for you. You also have the opportunity to dive the world-famous Zenobia wreck on your PADI Advanced Open Water course. This wreck is one of the top 5 wrecks in the world. There we can do 2 dives (deep dive and wreck dive).
As a certified Advanced Open Water Diver, you can dive to a maximum depth of 30 meters.
