Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course. The Advanced Open Water Diver
course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water.
This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your Immerse School of Diving PADI Instructor. This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving. Upgrade to PADI Advanced Open Water from PADI Adventure Diver for just £100.

What does it involve?
To take the PADI Advanced Open Water course you must be a PADI Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organisation), and be 15 years old (12 years old for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver).
Once you have booked in with Immerse School of Diving you will need to complete a few forms and bring these to your first session – a Continuing Education Administrative Document; and a Medical Statement. Please ensure you read these in full before your session. If you answer “yes” to any question on the Medical Statement you will need medical clearance before you can dive – see our FAQs for further information.
Before your first Adventure Dive we will provide you with a PADI Adventure Diver crewpak which contains all the materials you will need for your
course. We will also provide you with access to a copy of the PADI Adventure Diver DVD. You will need to read the relevant chapter of your manual and watch the relevant chapter of the video before each Adventure Dive.
What is next?
Apply your new skills by joining in any Club Immerse activities at home or abroad to gain experience and make diving friends.
As a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you’ll want to think about becoming a PADI Rescue Diver. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur. If you book onto the PADI Rescue Diver course within 14 days of completion of your PADI Advanced Open Water course with Immerse School of Diving, we’ll give you 10% off of the price of our PADI Rescue Diver course (subject to terms and conditions).
PADI Adventure Dives can also count towards PADI Specialty Diver certifications. For example, if you liked your Night Adventure Dive so much that you wanted to take a complete PADI Night Diver Specialty course, your Night Adventure Dive can count as the first dive of that specialty.
