PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

From €480

5 half days

Are you ready to meet some new challenges?  Thirsty for adventure?  Do you want to have a lot of fun?  The PADI Advanced Open Water course is made for you!

This is the dreamed of moment to learn new techniques, increase your confidence and really progress underwater.

The course is made up of 5 Adventure dives.  The Deep and Underwater Navigation dives are compulsory.  You then have the choice of three themes that interest you…

During the PADI Advanced Open Water Course the emphasis is on the practical side.  The student independently covers the theory which is checked and revised by your Instructor during the dives.  The studying is complemented by specific techniques learnt in Open Water (and sometimes prepared in confined water).

Once you’ve got the certification you can dive up to 30 metres (20 metres for Junior Advanced Open Water Divers).

You’ll be welcomed in a familiar and relaxed atmosphere, by a team of serious professionals who put an accent on leisure and pleasure!

  • No lifting, your gear is systematically transported with our chariots between the centre and the 10 metres distance towards the boat.
  • Hot showers in the changing rooms of our dive centre.
  • Access to an innovative extra : a dive analysed by a Dopper* ultrasound (not invasive, no needle) “O’Dive” that for the first time globally allows a diver to adapt his diving by taking account of gas microbubbles detected in the veins after the dive.  This gives you real physiological data (not just theoretical) about your decompression thanks to a French startup “O’Dive”.
  • Access to the most beautiful and prestigious dive sites of the Meditterranean.  The “Grec”, “Donator”, “Hellcat”, “Ville de Grasse” : the only paddle steamer wreck still intact or even a submarine decorated with “The order of freedom”.  Not forgetting the pinnacles or the famous “Gabinière drop off”, one the richest marine life sites in the heart of the “Port Cros” national park.  There is something for all tastes, enormous schools of barracuda, from turtles to sunfish via monkfish and groupers and red gorgonians!
  • The closest dive centre to the Golden Islands from the mainland.
  • Many hotels and restaurants nearby, for all budgets.  La Londe Les Maures is at the heart of the Côte d’Azur, between Hyères and St Tropez, in one of the most preserved areas due to the “Port Cros” National Park and the summer residence of the President of the Republic : “Fort Bregançon”.  We’re located on the port, with a big car park, a departure point for the ferries to the Golden Islands and all public transport connections.  There are many other activities available for all of the family while you’re making bubbles!  Find all of our recommendations here.
