This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities.

PADI Advanced Course Description
Take your skills to the next level with the PADI advanced open water course

The course consists of a theory part and a practical part. Before the start of your PADI Advanced Open Water course in Bali, you finish your theory either through eLearning or by reading the Adventures in Diving manual and making the knowledge reviews. If you decide to study here on Bali using the manual, try to come by before the start of your course to pick up a copy to start preparing. There is no DVD or exam involved, so you won’t need to spend any time in the classroom!

For the practical part you’ll perfect your dive skills by completing five adventure dives over 2 days at some of the top dive spots on Bali. We usually do 1 day of diving on the famous USAT Liberty wreck in Tulamben and 1 day of diving on the great dive sites in the Padang Bay area.

Two adventure dives are compulsory: underwater navigation and deep water diving (maximum 30 metres). For the other 3 adventure dives you can choose from a wide range of adventure dives.


You can choose from the following options:

  • Wreck Diver – Dive on the famous USAT Liberty wreck from WWII
  • Peak Performance Buoyancy – Fine-tune your buoyancy skills
  • Underwater Naturalist – Try to spot marine life in this underwater treasure hunt
  • AWARE Shark Conservation Diver – Learn more about shark conservation
  • Drift Diver – Learn how to deal with currents and drifts
  • Search & Recovery – Learn how to search and recover objects
  • Fish ID – Learn to identify fish families
  • Enriched Air* – Enhance your bottom time and learn to dive with enriched air

Something for everyone!


* The Enriched Air Adventure Dive can best be combined with the complete Enriched Air Specialty to ensure you can dive with nitrox in the future. If you opt for doing the enriched air adventure dive only, you will need to purchase a separate manual. Contact us for more information.

After completing the PADI Advanced Open Water course in Bali, you get your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification if you are 15 years or older or the Junior Advanced Open Water Diver certification if you are younger than 15. A certification that is recognized worldwide. Once certified, you will discover a whole new range of diving possibilities.

TIP: Combine your PADI Advanced Open Water Course with the Enriched Air Diver Specialty, and get US$25 discount on your course fee!

As all of our Bali diving courses, the course is available in multiple languages.

We look forward to seeing you for your PADI Advanced Open Water course in Bali!
