PADI Advanced Open Water

If you're already PADI Open Water (or equivalent from another dive organisation) then why not improve your diving skills and get certified to dive to 30m? Better buoyancy and confidence in the water means better air consumption and longer dives!

The PADI Advanced Open Water course consists of 5 Adventure Dives, each one being an introduction to a different specialist diving area. You have many different dives to choose from, however you must complete the Deep Diver and Underwater Navigation dives to qualify as an Advanced Open Water diver; the other three are up to you!

PADI Advanced Open Water

We like to teach the PADI Advanced Open Water diver course over 3 days, 2 dives per day. With a total of 6 dives, learning is at a relaxed pace, giving you more time to practice your new skills, enjoy the diving and of course, your holiday on Koh Lanta.

If you have not been diving for a while then we will also include a free Scuba Skills Refresher on the first dive.

Are You Fit To Dive?

Whilst scuba diving is a very safe activity, it is important to know that you are fit to dive and that you do not have any medical conditions that could increase your risk of an accident underwater.

If you answer 'yes' to any of the medical questions, please print the entire form and take to your family doctor who will assess your fitness to dive and issue a medical statement which we must see before you start diving.
