This combination training program is designed for avid divers looking to gain more practical training for their next adventures. There's something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites: sometimes it's a wreck that attracts you below 18 meters; on wall dives it may be King Cruiser Wreck, or a giant fan or sponge. Dive with our PADI Pro team for a perfect safety record (zero accidents), great dive training and fun!
The course lasts 3 days and includes 8 training dives in open water and 1 in confined water. On completion participants will receive the PADI Advanced Open Water and PADI Deep Diver certificates.
The PADI Advanced Open Water course includes all required training sessions, rental dive equipment, personal PADI e-Manual (available in more than 18 languages), PADI certification, dive logbook and transfers from/to your accommodation.
