PADI Advance Open Water Courses Wiltshire

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.


That's what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about, it’s designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course. The course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water.  This certification allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 30 meters.

This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of one of our PADI Instructors. 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.
