Advanced License to Dive

After gaining your license to roam the endless blue with an Open Water Certification, those with an adventurer’s soul and love for all things aquatic, will be ready to embark on the next step; your PADI or SSI Advanced certificate! Differing from you’re an initial open water course, your AOW (Advanced Open Water) certification requires very little theory and plenty of underwater action. An AOW focuses on adventure dives (such as an exhilarating voyage to the world famous Yongala Shipwreck) and fine-tuning skills like buoyancy and navigation. Gaining your AOW is also a thrilling way to opt, and practice, various types of dives that excite you most! Add a magnificent new dimension to your diving talents with this 2 day experience!
