Advance Open Water

Advanced Open Water Diver


It’s time to dive deeper! Expand your diving knowledge and skills to new depths and new and exciting skills. Ever wondered how your guides always know where they are underwater? Learn to navigate the Cayman reefs just like them! Mandatory dives include your deep diver and under water navigation dives for the Advanced certification and diver’s choice of 3 others. We highly recommend the night dive! From octopus to rays in the sand see the underwater world in a whole new light (or lack thereof.)

Other elective options to choose from include: Enriched air (Nitrox), Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB), Wreck, Boat, Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB), Fish ID or Search and Recovery. Cover all relevant theory upfront with PADI eLearning, available at

Over two days expand your experience and become the ever more independent diver. Join us on the dive boat for the rest of your holiday and enjoy a discounted student rate.
