PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

A great course to extend the knowledge and skills learned on your open water course. The PADI Advanced Open Water course qualifies you down to 30 meters, meaning that we can show you some of the amazing shipwrecks of the German High Seas Fleet.

The Essentials

Bronze Package

This is a 2 day course which starts off shallow, with 1 day at the shore. Here we spend 3 dives working on fundamental dive skills such as buoyancy control and underwater navigation, all whilst exploring the British Blockships sunk by the Royal Navy during the World Wars. For day 2, we head to the boat for 2 dives on the German Fleet. 

Total Dives: 5

Prerequisites - PADI OW or Equivalent and Drysuit Certification


One Just Isn't Enough

Silver Package

This 3 day course is perfect for people that have not dived in drysuits before. 
We start off with 2 days at the Churchill Barriers, firstly with the PADI Drysuit course before moving onto the first dives of the PADI Advanced Open Water Course.

We head to the boat for day 3 to finish off the course on the German High Seas Fleet.

Total Dives: 6
