Description

PADI Advanced Diving Course

Ready to dive to 30m? Then it’s time to do your PADI Advanced diving course!

  • 2 days/5 dives
  • no final exam
  • just Knowledge Development exercises and some of the best diving in Dahab!

Dahab is a great place to do your PADI Advanced diving course, as you get to dive some of our most famous sites during your course dives. With your PADI Instructor you complete the 2 core dives: deep and underwater navigation. Then, choose 3 elective dives to complete your course. Here are a few ideas:

  • Bells to Blue Hole as a Drift dive
  • Lighthouse as Peak Performance Buoyancy or a Night dive
  • The Islands as Underwater Naturalist
  • the Canyon for your Deep dive
  • You can even do Thistlegorm as a Wreck Dive or Ras Muhammad as your Boat Dive (although there is a supplement for this)
  • or… you can finish your course on a Camel Diving Safari (again, for a bit extra)

Upon completion, you will be certified to dive to 30 metres anywhere in the world.

Pre-requisites

  • PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent from another training organization)
  • 15 years old – or 12 years old for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver

Upgrade your PADI manual to eLearning or Touch

As with most PADI courses these days, there are great digital manual options. A pdf manual is included with your course. Of if you’d like your PADI manual integrated with video, upgrade to the eLearning or Touch version.

Booking options

  • You can book the PADI Advanced Open Water course only
  • You can add accommodation, airport transfers, extra dives, etc – as you book
  • Or you can contact us and we’ll be happy to tailor a package for you.
  • If you have any questions, just ask!

    To start with I have tried a couple of different diving centers in dahab. But many things stand out to me about Desert Divers, they are extremely nice and put much effort into making your experience unforgettable with ease. From the management to the instructors and staff they all truly know how to give an excellent customer service experience, they are even helpful in directing you to other activities or accommodation opposition they don't offer just to help you out. I would also like to say that they are punctual and very professional. I always find myself going back. (A facebook review of Desert Divers Dahab)

    "Simply Amazing!" My friend and I completed our Advanced Open Water with Desert Divers and I can honestly say the the whole experience from start to finish was superb. All the staff are completely professional and did everything they could to make sure our time with them was amazing. I have been to dahab lots of times and can honestly say that we wouldn't go anywhere else now as desert divers won us over. We can't wait to return. Thank you to everyone there
