PADI Advanced Open Water Course Gold Coast

From AUD $695.00
  • Duration: 2 Days (approx.)
  • Location: Hollywell

This is not really a course, it is an adventure program designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps building confidence and expands your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. 

This 2 day program starts with prior online learning in your own time, followed by 5 ocean dives on the Gold Coast reefs and wrecks over 2 days. Upon completion, you will earn the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Qualification. Since our dive trips are double dives, you will get 6 dives in total rather than just 5.


This course can commence almost every Saturday and can be completed over a single weekend however, you are able to spread the course over 2 weekends if desired in which case a Sunday commencement is possible as well. Please contact us prior to your booking in order to confirm availability.


Depending on the trip schedule on a specific weekend and weather conditions, we will complete your course at several sites such as:

  • 80 Foot Reef (Deep Dive - 28m)
  • Scottish Prince Shipwreck
  • Greta's Reef
  • Migaloo Reef
  • Mermaid Reef
  • Palm Beach Reef
  • Wave Break Island
Further to these sites, we have back-up options in case waether is against us such as Wave Break Island or a drift dive along the Gold Coast Seaway South Wall. Visit our website for detailed dive site information:
