PADI Advanced Open Water Course Format

At Scubadive West we complete the PADI Advanced Openwater Diver course in one weekend, starting on Friday afternoon and finishing by Sunday evening. During the winter months (October – March) our course is completed over two days; starting on Saturday morning, completing 3 dives that day (one to be a Night Dive) and finishing on Sunday.

Our PADI Advanced Open Water Course is structured as follows:

Two Core PADI Adventure Dives: Deep Dive & Underwater Navigation

Then choose three more dives from the following list: Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Dive, Drysuit Dive, Search and Recovery Dive, Digital Underwater Photography.


Combine the PADI Advanced Course & Drysuit Specialty Courses.

Complete your Advanced Openwater Course and Drysuit Diver Specialty together.

How does this offer work? Complete your Drysuit Specialty Course on Friday, thus allowing you to undertake their entire Advanced Course on Saturday and Sunday in one of our warm, toasty drysuits!
