Become a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
The course is run over two days, usually a weekend. You will complete some dive theory, including 5 knowledge development sections, at your own pace at home with PADI’s online eLearning followed by five Adventure dives. Three of these are shore based and two are from a dive charter vessel. Under the supervision of a PADI Instructor you will gain new diving skills that allows you to build up your confidence and experience level.
The dives will be conducted around the Tasman Peninsula, home to some of the best dive sites in Tasmania. You will see a fair amount of soft corals typical for Tasmania's temperate water, an abundance of anenomes and butterfly perches, maybe even one of the many fur seals says hello.
