PADI Advanced Open Water Dive Training Course
3 Day 2 Night Liveaboard
The PADI Advanced course is the popular first step in continuing your dive education. It is designed to expand your diving skills and knowledge and to give the inexperienced diver added confidence in their diving.
Our PADI Advanced course is conducted in conjunction with our 3 day 2 night dive trip. You'll have the opportunity to participate in up to 11 dives, 9 day and 2 night, over the duration of the trip. 5 of these dives will be training dives required to complete your PADI Advanced Certification and the remaining 6 will be recreational dives for you to enjoy the spectacular Great Barrier Reef.
There are no formal classroom sessions involved with this course, but you are required to read through the PADI "Adventures in Diving" manual and answer the relevant knowledge reviews prior to participating in the training dives. We recommend that you check-in at our retail shop on the corner of Grafton & Shields streets at your earliest convenience to pick up the course material and do some pre-reading prior to trip departure.
Your 5 Advanced course training dives are made up of 3 core dives being 'Deep diving', 'Underwater Navigation' and 'Night diving' and then 2 elective subject dives where you have a choice between Underwater Naturalist, Peak Performance Buoyancy, and the popular Underwater Photography module. Other elective dive options may be available.
Pre-requisite for this course is a PADI Open water certificate or the equivalent certification with another training agency.

Important Information for Course Participants: Prior to commencing your Continuing Education Dive Course you are required to complete the self-assessment Continuing Education Student Diver Medical Declaration. A positive response to any question means that there is a pre-existing condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must consult a medical practitioner preferably with experience in diving medicine to obtain a dive medical certificate that states that you are fit to undertake recreational diver training.
To avoid disappointment we suggest that you complete the Continuing Education Student Diver Medical Declaration and if necessary obtain a dive medical from a doctor prior to commencement. (Any costs associated in this process are payable direct to the doctor). This must be completed within 12 months of the course commencement.
If you are unsure about a specific medical condition please check with your doctor or with us prior to making your reservation.
