How To Complete The Advaned Open Water Course

To become a certified PADI Advaned Open Water Diver, you must complete the Deep Dive and Underwater Navigator Dive, along with 3 other adventure dives of your choice under the supervision of one of DiveCarib’s certified instructors.

Each Adventure dive you take requires you to complete the knowledge review for that dive in the Adventures in Diving Manual, and have it signed by one of our instructors. You can get the e-learning material from the PADI website

Top Notch

Did 3 dive courses including a deep dive to 40m with Leigh instructing. Definitely the most professional dive centre I’ve been to. If you are serious about any type of diving then they are the ones to go to. Hope to get back for a few more dives next season!
