Advanced Open Water

The next step after Open Water for most divers is the Advanced Open Water, increasing your maximum depth to 30m and gaining experience in different locations with different styles of diving, this course is always well recieved and is one that every member of staff enjoys being a part of as much as they enjoyed their own. 

The Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about advancing your skills.


Over five dives with one of our qualified instructors you'll practice underwater navigation and buoyancy, you'll try deep diving as well as making three specialty dives of your choosing (it's like a specialty sampler platter) subject to agreeing with the dive centre.


For every specialty dive you complete, you can earn credit toward PADI® specialty certifications so if you think you're interested in a specific type of SCUBA diving then see if it can be started as part of your Advanced Open Water?

Specialty Courses

If there's a particular area of diving that interests you, then specialities are the perfect way to gain some experience with a likeminded dive buddy and our expert instructors. 

The SCUBA Group is set up to allow individuals to be the best divers they can be, our approach is one of tuition, mentorship and support. We love teaching people to progress their diving but there is no substitute for getting out there and going diving! 

If you're looking to dive more, you may want a buddy, you might like a guide or perhaps you just need some inspiration on where to go diving... If this sounds like you then why not join the club? (It's free) and you'll see where are divers are getting wet and what they're up to.
