The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.
You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

It’s time take it to the next level! It’s time to come to Varna and get your Advanced Open Water certification!
Advanced Open Water Diver Course in Varna
Unlike the open water course, the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course involves less theory, it’s all about gaining experience!
Normally done over two days, you will complete five ‘adventure’ dives* at some of Varna’s very best dive sites.
There are two ‘core’ dives on the course which are the underwater navigator and deep dive. Navigation is completed in our bay, while we head out to open sea for the deep dive.
The other three dives are chosen from the PADI ‘Adventures in Diving’ manual, but the most popular ones are, Underwater Naturalist, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Multi-Level and Computer Diving, Drift Diving and Night Diving. Many of these dives can be coupled with visiting some of our dive sites.
Fantastic! You are now certified to 30 meters and can join all the dive trips we have to offer!
* Single Adventure Dives
If you don’t have time to complete the full course you can just complete individual ‘Adventure’ dives which can be credited towards finishing the course at a later date with no time limit.
