PADI Advanced Certification

PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is the best way for new divers to expand your diving experience under the supervision of a professional PADI Instructor.

The typical PADI Advanced program is about gaining experience in different areas of diving such as Deep, Night, Navigation, etc.  You will find that many dive centres/instructors simply supervise divers during these dives allowing divers to gain experience, however, there is often a “hands off” approach when it comes to these dives offering the students very little actual instruction.

The Ocean Quest Difference...

At Ocean Quest, we have customized the Advanced program to include actual instruction in various areas of diving so students will actually develop their skill level as they gain experience.  Ultimately, this gives the students more confidence and makes diving more enjoyable for diver in the program as well as after.  The actual dives we will compete in the program are: Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck, Deep, Navigation and Night.
