Advanced Open Water Course

Advanced Open Water Course


The PADI Advanced Open Water course is designed to advance your diving. Its perfect for people who have just passed their Open Water and want to improve their abilities while learning new diving skills.

Your Basic Advanced Open Water course will be made up of three parts:

  • Knowledge Development using PADI eLearning (Manual available upon request) which is done at home at your own pace.
  • A classroom session to prepare you for your open water dives.
  • Five open water dives, two of which will be your deep dive and your navigation dive. We dive in the sea when possible, but if the weather turns we will have excellent diving at Ellerton Lake or Capernwray Quarry.

Course Options:

  • Basic Advanced Open Water Course (£265) – This level is your basic Advanced course, which covers everything required to complete the course. At this level your deep dive will be done at Capernwray Quarry. Your five dives will be done over two days.
  • Advanced Boat Diver Course (£365) – At this level, you’ll have the chance to do a boat dive and come on our evening or weekend boat sessions. This is a great way to extend your skills and see some of the wrecks and sea life the North Sea has to offer. You’ll complete 6 dives over three days, which will include a Delayed Surface Marker Buoy Speciality (Click here for more information).
  • Tailormade Advanced Open Water Course (From £450) – At this level, your course can be tailor made to fit around your requirements and your schedule.
