The PADI Advanced Open water course allows you to take your diving adventures deeper while providing you with new skills and knowledge to enhance your abilities as a diver.

PADI Advanced Open Water Dive Course

The PADI adventures in diving program offers both the adventure diver and advanced open water diver certifications. If you complete any three adventure dives, you can earn your PADI adventure diver certification.

When you have completed your deep adventure dive, underwater navigation dive and three other adventure dives for a total of five dives, you will have earned your advanced open water diver certification. And be certified to a new maximum dive depth of 30 meters.

When you have completed your advanced qualification you’ll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water and simply enjoy diving more because you will have more experience and a better understanding of the underwater environment. Many divers choose the advanced open water diver course immediately after completing their open water certification to spend more time with their scuba diving instructor and to gain insight into some of the many varied paths your diving interests might follow.

The advanced diver certification will make sure that you are not left out when the others are doing the deeper dives but will give you the confidence when it comes to the more challenging dives that some areas may offer.

“Just qualified my open water certification with Pisces. Excellent experience. Supper friendly staffs, like Jackie by the front desk. Did my course with two different dive masters David and Mikhal. They are so professional and helpful. Did seal and shark dive on Sunday. Awesome experience. So many sharks and cape fur seals swam freely right next to you! Beautiful and diverse marine life. As a South Africa tour guide, I have to say that Pisces Diving Center is really a professionally operated, well maintained, highly recommended diving center which I really enjoyed and trusted. Looking forward to dive with you guys soon.”

Looking forward to many more dives with Pisces Divers.

“I did my PADI Open Water Diving course here. My course instructor, David Hofman was great – patient, very friendly and approachable and very good at his job! A well organised dive center, friendly staff and expertly instructed courses using good quality, well maintained gear. Their cafe is clean and toastys are good! I didnt have time to do another dive trip with them after my curse but I definitely will on my next trip. Highly recommend!”
