PADI Advanced Open Water Course

Expand the environment and depths you can dive in with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver License allowing you to dive deeper...


The PADI Advanced Course is the next step from Open Water Diver, and with New Way Diving we have catered the best dives to the environment surrounding the waters of Koh Tao. The course takes place over 2 days and includes 5 Dives with the focus being to develop your all round diving environment, rather than focusing on scuba skills that were taught during the Open Water Course. 

If you have not dived in the last year then you might need to take a PADI Scuba-Tune Up before you can enroll in our PADI Advanced Open Water Course.If in doubt, send us an email and check what we can do - it's your holiday and we are flexible!

What's Next

After becoming certified as an Advanced Open Water Diver, there are a few main routes to continue. Firstly, you may decide to Fun Dive with us. Our ex-student rate is 700 THB per dive, and all students get their first 2 dives at 50% discount!

Or perhaps you wish to learn more about the subjects you covered in the Advanced course. This is done through specialties, with the most popular being the Deep Diver Specialty, which certifies you to 40m, the Wreck Diver Specialty, which allows you explore the inside of wrecks, and Enriched Air Nitrox, which allows you to dive on Nitrox all over the world and extend your dive times. 

Otherwise a great confidence boost is to continue your training with the PADI Rescue Diver
