PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

Exploration, emotion, experiences, that is what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver in Tamarindo is all about. Our course is designed to improve your diving, so you can start immediately once you get your Open water diver certification.

The course helps you build confidence and expand your diving skills through 5 different adventure dives in Catalina islands, one of the best scuba diving spot in Costa Rica.

During your Advanced Open Water course you will experience famous local dive sites in Catalina islands, like El Clasico, Santa Catalina islands or the dramatic drop-offs at the Sombreros islands.

We will take you on exciting wall dives on the north side of Costa Rica’s Pacific ocean. In addition to seeing amazing aquatic life and breathtaking slopes and steep walls, you may get lucky and see a Humpback whale or a Manta ray!

Try different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor!

This license allows you to dive anywhere in the world to a maximum depth of 30 metres/100 feet without professional supervision (where local laws allow). This certification requires just 2 days – or 1 day if you already hold an Adventures Diving certification.

During the course, you can even try training exercises from the PADI Rescue Diver course during this program that will credit you if you continue your diver education.

*No fly for 24 hs after diving is mandatory.
