Padi Advanced Open Water Course ( elearning included)
The PADI Advanced Open Water course is made up of 2 sections
Online eLearning – We will issue you with an eLearning key. This will allow you to complete the theory portion of the course online in your own time.
Practical sessions– the Advanced Open Water course consists of 5 adventure dives where you learn skills for different types of dives. There are two compulsory dives - Navigation and Deep dive (between 18 and 30 metres), and we will work with you to decide on the best fit for the other three dives.
For your practical sessions we provide all the diving equipment you require, with the exception of a mask and snorkel (as this is a personal fit item). Please ensure you bring the following with you:
Mask and Snorkel
Tog’s and Towel
Warm clothes for after diving
Lunch (especially on lake and boat days as there are no shops close by these sites)
Something to drink
Please answer the medical questions honestly for your safety and ours. If all answers are No you are fit to dive, if you answer Yes to any of the questions, you will need sign off by a Doctor.
Purchasing this course online constitutes confirmation you have completed the medical form and are fit to dive.

Covid-19 Vaccination Policy
It is Dive Zone Taurangas policy that we require anyone undertaking training or registering with us for a trip to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19
We are taking this stance to not only protect our staff and customers but to do our bit in limiting the spread of the virus.
The long-term effects of Covid-19 and ‘long Covid’ on the respiratory system can pose a serious threat that can be detrimental to divers and while we respect other people’s decision, we do not wish to subject our staff and customers to any unnecessary risk.
If you enroll on a course, know that all our instructors and staff will be double vaccinated for both your and their safety and wellbeing.
We will require proof of vaccination from customers enrolled on courses and trips from 1 December 2021
We thank you for your support and custom during these challenging times.
