PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

13,500THB per person

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course takes your SCUBA diving skills and knowledge to the next level by introducing you to a range of different underwater activities like navigation, deep diving, wreck diving, fish identification, and photography.

By learning advanced SCUBA diving techniques, you will become more comfortable underwater, build your confidence, and extend your maximum depth rating to 30 metres – all under the guidance of one of our experienced PADI Instructors.

During your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification, you’ll try out the first dive of five different PADI Specialties. Each dive counts as credit to the corresponding specialty, so you can easily carry on to get each full certification if you wish.

To enrol on the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, you’ll need to be Open Water Diver certified already - either through PADI or another equivalent agency. Also, please note that:

  • Participants must be at least 12 years old, and junior divers are limited to a maximum depth of 21 metres.

  • You will be required to fill in a PADI medical form before any in-water activities. Some pre-existing conditions require a medical sign off from a dive physician. If in doubt, please contact us with any medical questions prior to booking.

You’ll plan your PADI Advanced Open Water dives with your instructor by choosing from a long list of possible electives. Two are mandatory - Deep and Underwater Navigation. The other three are up to you! There are no course videos to watch or exams to take, just a few knowledge reviews that you can complete ahead of time with PADI eLearning.

We provide a complete set of basic SCUBA gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD), dive gauges, and a tank. However, we’ll also introduce you to some pieces of specialised equipment for advanced divers and teach you how to use them.

You can get started today by registering for PADI eLearning online. Your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Crew-Pak contains everything you need, including course materials and your certification credit.
