Advanced Open Water
2 to 3 days
Improve your dive skills and become more confident in your abilities by taking the Advanced Open Water Course, the first step after your Open Water Diver Certification. This course offers different experiences and training options that range from simple introductions and underwater activities to more challenging experiences. A great way to get a few extra dives in and hone your skills under the supervision of an instructor at the same time. The course is flexible with 5 boat dives, minimal theory and no test!
You'll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to:
• Underwater navigation
• Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet)
• A sampler of three more Adventure Dives of your choice
1 to 2 days
This is a perfect option after your Open Water Diver Certification or if you do not have enough time to take the whole Advanced Open Water Diver Course. You earn the Adventure Diver Certification by making 3 of the 5 boat dives that you and your instructor can choose together. This course is flexible and can be done in one day!

Scuba Review Program
Has it been a while since you’ve been scuba diving? Do you feel like your scuba skills and knowledge are a bit rusty? The Scuba Review Tune-up is just the refresher you need. It reacquaints you with diving so that you're back to feeling comfortable in the underwater world in less than a day.
After you complete the knowledge assessment, you go through the Confined Water Skills Preview. You review information about each skill, why it’s important, points to remember when performing the skill and a short video clip. Completing this section just before practicing is a great way to refresh your knowledge of how each skill is performed.
The Scuba Review course is particularly beneficial if you:
• Are a PADI Open Water Diver course referral student who wants a refresher prior to making your open water training dives
• Are a PADI Scuba Diver who wants to upgrade to Open Water Diver
• Just haven’t scuba dived in a while and want to get aclimated again
Once you are finished with the theory and the pool part you can apply your new or refreshed skill in Open Water with a fun dive on one of our top sites on the Gili Islands.
Enriched Air Nitrox
The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.
If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course.
You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During a practical session, and two optional (or required) scuba dives, you’ll:
- Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
- Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
- Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
