Continuing your underwater adventures.
Learn about your new adventures through PADI's eLearning.
Optional Pool dives if you need more practise.
Explore the ocean through 5 adventure dives in the open water.


You do not have to be “advanced” to take the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. It is designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through 5 different Adventure Dives, including diving deeper and navigating your way around underwater. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.


Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course (hyperlink to Specialty Course page). If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

You study at your own pace through an easy to use, interactive program.

Things to note before signing up for eLearning:

  1. you answer NO to every questions on page one OR

  2. if you answer YES to any questions, we will need the doctor's approval on page 3.

STEP 2 Confined Water Dives (otherwise known as Pool Training):
Confined water dives are optional in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. During this confined water session, we will be going through some skills that you have learnt in your PADI Open Water Diver Course (eg. Being neutrally buoyant, neutral buoyancy swim, reciprocal compass navigation and SMB deployment). We will prepare you for your open water dives by introducing you to new skills like natural navigation and compass navigation using the square pattern. The practical training will be conducted at Sentosa over 2 days. Our confined water training is typically done over the weekends. However, you can also contact us to arrange for other days if you prefer. Price varies based on the number of students. Sign up here!

STEP 3 Open Water Training:

After completing your eLearning, you will make five Adventure Dives: a deep dive (beyond 18m), a navigation dive, and three additional Adventure Dives of your choice to earn your certification. You will find that the dives have lesser skills compared to your PADI Open Water Diver Course and have a lot more exploration. So you will definitely be having a lot more fun! Sign up here!
