PADII offers a great program to take your diving to the next level.  As an advanced diver, you will be certified to dive to 30 m or 100 feet.  You will also learn extremely valuable navigation skills.  The Course will include a total of five dives, which include a navigation dive and deep dive below  20m or 60 feet.  For the remaining three dives to complete the certifcation, you can choose any 3 specialty dives offered at Sau Bay Resort & Spa. These include:

  • Night Diver

  • Boat DIver

  • Digital Underwater Photography 

  • Dive Against Debris

  • Enriched Air Nitrox

  • Peak Performance Buoyancy

  • Search & Recovery

  • Underwater Naturalist

Other courses may be available through PADI, but may not be available at our resort due to local conditions (e.g., dry suit diver, wreck diver).

Step 1: Take PADI e-Learning Course

The first step in getting your Advanced Open Water Scuba Diver certification at Sau Bay Resort & Spa is to sign up for the PADI e-Learning course.  This course will provide the relevant instruction on advanced diving techniques. Once you register for the course, you just need to complete your on-line course, at which time our dive shop will be notified that you have completed your PADI eLearning.   Note that the cost of the e-Learning is separate from the instruction charged by Sau Bay Resort & Spa.

Step 2: Conduct your 5 Required Courses on the Rainbow Reef!

Once you complete your PADI e-Learning, you will discuss the specialty dives with your instructor and begin your diving.  Most of the dives will be conducted out on the Rainbow Reef.  

For your deep dive, you can certainly do the Great White Wall - just be sure to check the White Wall Schedule to make sure it aligns with your trip date as it not possible to do this dive at any time.

Step 3: Receive your certification

Once you complete your PADI e-Learning, you will discuss the specialty dives with your instructor and begin your diving.  Most of the dives will be conducted out on the Rainbow Reef.  

For your deep dive, you can certainly do the Great White Wall - just be sure to check the White Wall Schedule to make sure it aligns with your trip date as it not possible to do this dive at any time.

What if I'm short on time - can I still do the White Wall ?

You absolutely can!  If you start your advanced dives but don't complete them all at the resort, you can have the instructor sign off on your completed dives and complete the remaining adventures dives back home or at another resort.
