White Manta Diving offers the PADI Advanced Open Water course to prepare the student diver for diving in a wide range of conditions. It also provides a more comprehensive study of dive skills such as using dive computers at altitude.

Benefits of an Advanced certification include certified diving up to 30m; enhanced safety; guidance and supervision of an experienced PADI instructor; skills and experience necessary to command your own dive objective.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course also serves as a refresher for those who have not been diving for some time or need more experience in scuba diving.
