This is one of our most popular courses so we run this course every day (excluding Sundays).

Just let us know on booking which day you wish to start !

Please allow 2 and a half days to complete your advanced training. It can easily be completed on a short break holiday, however please keep in mind that you must leave 18 hours between your last dive and your flight home.


"What does the course involve?"

This course is almost all diving and very little theory! The Advanced Open Water Diver Course is made up of 5 dives, the two core dives - Navigation and Deep, plus three more dives chosen from a list of elective dives. Elective Dives: Wreck, Naturalist, Night (€25 extra), Fish ID, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Multi-Level, Nitrox (€5 for nitrox fill, €35 for the Nitrox manual and €5 for computer hire if you do not have one), Search and Recovery, Boat (€25 extra), UW Digital Photography (€25 for camera hire). The intention is to expose you to as many different diving experiences as possible.


Before each dive, you are expected to read that chapter from the "Advanced Open Water" manual relating to the dive you have choosen. There is short classroom session before each dive which reinforces what has been read. This is the only theory involved. There is no exam and no confined water work.


If you have not dived for some time, we recommend you start with a shake down dive, to refresh your open water skills and get yourself correctly weighted in the water.


The use of all equipment, transport to and from the dive sites as well as tuition fees are all included.

At this level you are expected to have your own dive computer. If however you do not have one you can rent one from us at a cost of €5 per day.
