By completing both of these courses, you'll become a diver who is qualified to dive to a maximum of 30m! This is the perfect range for NZ diving, meaning you'll be able to come along on trips to The Bay of Islands as well as, (once you've got a couple more dives under your belt) able to explore epic dives such as the shipwreck of the HMNZS Waikato!

Open Water Course is the world's most popular scuba diving course, and is your first step into the underwater world! If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the amazing world beneath the waves,
this is where it starts. It has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.
On completion of this course you will be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver and qualified to dive with a buddy to a maximum of 18 meters. This PADI certification is internationally recognised and allows you to scuba dive anywhere in the world.
Advanced Open Water
course is the next step for Open Water Divers to gain more experience, confidence and increase the maximum depth you are certified to 30 meters.
You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to
your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialty dives while gaining experience under the supervision of your Performance Diver Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
Why learn to dive with Performance Diver?
This is a very important question! There are many dive schools out there, so why would you choose ours?
We have nice small class sizes to prioritise your learning,
We like to keep our courses at a ratio of 1 instructor to 8 students to ensure that you have the time to spend with your instructor working on the skills that you need to complete. If you continue your education and become a PADI Advanced Open Water diver, you'll find we have just 6 students per class!
We're always going diving!
Once you're qualified as a PADI diver, we have heaps of shore dives, day trips, weekend adventures and more for you to get in the water! Every weekend throughout the season there are trips planned, so you're never short of options. Our social nights are a great way to make new dive buddies and new friends.
As a Performance Diver student you get exclusive offers
and pricing on a huge range of dive gear. If you're not ready to commit to buying your own then no worries - we have heaps of rental gear at a great rate for you. We want you to go diving, so we'll make it as accessible as we can!
Our Instructors are awesome
- Here at Performance Diver we only teach PADI courses, and all of our PADI Instructors are here for one reason - they love diving! Sharing the underwater world with you is such an amazing experience and we're privileged to be able to do just that.

If you answer
to any of the medical questions you
complete a Dive Medical check with your Doctor and obtain written medical clearance
the start of the course as we can't allow you in the water without it.
You must be able to swim 200 metres (or 300m if using mask, snorkel & fins) and tread water / float for 10 mins.
Students must be at least 14 years of age. Parental consent is required for students aged under 18 years of age.
We can happily train students from age 10, however this requires reduced student to Instructor ratios and as such, comes with a different fee. Please
Costs stated here are exclusive of any charter fees (for example if you choose a course at The Poor Knights).
All scuba equipment is provided for the Open Water course but you will need to have your own mask, fins snorkels and booties. If you don’t have these you can purchase a package
or you can hire them for the duration of the course for just $100.
We even offer a 'money back' hire scheme. So if you want to purchase your own package during your course, but have already paid for the rental, then we'll happily give you the rental value back as credit against your own new gear!
Gear is not provided for the Advanced Open Water course, but you are welcome to hire at a competitive rate if you don't already own your own SCUBA equipment.
for diving course terms & conditions. By purchasing this service you agree to all terms & conditions.
FREE Shipping for Orders over NZ$100 (excluding cylinders)!
