Advanced Open Water Course


Improve your diving skills with the next step in recreational diving and include both The Rainbow Warrior and The Canterbury wreck dives as part of your course!

This scuba diving course will extend your confidence, your expertise and your maximum depth limit!

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course will take you for 5 adventure dives. A deep dive (up to 30 metres) and an underwater navigation dive are required, with the other 3 dives almost entirely up to you!

With Paihia Dive you can include both the Rainbow Warrior and the Canterbury on your course. These wreck dives are some of the best in the world.

For your open water advanced course, you will need to have: 

  • PADI Open Water Dive certification or equivalent
  • Dive equipment – luckily we have full hire available on request!
  • If you haven’t dived for a while, you may need to complete a refresher before starting the course.
