PADI Advanced Open Water is the next step for most divers after the Open Water certification. It allows you to join most liveaboard trips all over the world. To further prepare for your next trip, you can also choose to do Enriched Air Nitrox specialty together with this course.

If you are still a beginner, you might want to check out our Open Water (equivalent to level 1 in some organizations). This is suitable for everyone without any experience requirements. It takes 3 days in total for the course in Koh Tao, Thailand. This level allows you to dive independently at a maximum depth of 18 meters.

If you don’t have enough time or you aren’t sure whether you like diving, you can always try Discover Scuba Diving. You don’t need to be able to swim to do this. Our highly experienced instructor will be with you at all times underwater. You can also choose to start practicing in the pool to gain confidence first.
