Want to start the process of becoming an Advanced Open Water Diver, but not yet ready to get in the water? Complete the PADI e-learning for you course, wherever you are and at your leisure so that you are ready to get in the water with us at a later date!
We'll be at the other end of the phone or just an email away if you have any questions during the theory, as we love talking diving!
Just to be clear - this is purely the 'theory' section of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. It will not make you a certified Advanced diver on it's own, and you will need to join us for the practical sections at some point... this just means you can get started now and continue at a later date!
After purchasing this package, you'll receive an email from PADI (please keep an eye on your spam folder just incase!) with a link to begin your digital learning. This is an awesome, interactive learning platform that is then perfectly complimented by in-person teaching by your Instructor.
When you have completed your e-learning, just get in touch with us to book your diving space and pay the balance (which is the full course fee, less the cost of this e-learning) and then come diving!
If you have a buddy that's booked on too then awesome! If not you'll be buddied up with another course mate for the duration of the course.
We hope you'll choose us to get your PADI Advanced Open Water here on Waiheke Island, Auckland! If you have any questions or specific requirements just let us know and we'll happily answer them all for you.
Why explore with us?
We believe that your learning experience should be as fun and accessible as possible. That's why you'll find our courses have the FULL PADI e-learning as standard, meaning you get to cover the theory at your own pace before the course starts. But, don't worry - we know that Instructor time is essential to your learning which is exactly why we build in a theory revision session too, so you can ask us anything you like in person! Best of both worlds!
We're proud to work with Scubapro, one of the worlds top gear brands, who keep us fully stocked with their gear, so if you need to hire for the course you can be sure of quality!
So with us you get small groups, quality Instruction, full e-learning, and top brand name equipment.
Simply book online, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with some specific info, such as meeting times and locations.
You'll need to let us know some of your sizes so that we can allocate gear if you need any (at an additional hire fee).
You must have checked through the medical form and obtained medical clearance (only required if you need to answer "yes" to one or more of the questions) before your activity starts, or else you won't be able to take part. Click here to download the PADI Medical Form.
You also must complete the appropriate liability release forms - we'll do these in store.
Also, while we can supply materials in a variety of languages, the course is taught in English so a good level of spoken English is also required.
Please note that for the Advanced Open Water courses our minimum age is 15 due to depth (divers under 15 are limited to 21m) and we need in person, signed paperwork from a parent or guardian for anyone under 18.
Boat fees are not included in this cost.
