PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

Diving at night, on a wreck, using enriched air nitrox, or the thrill of diving from a boat; all of these great adventure dives are available in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course offers you the chance to experience different styles of diving, all under the watchful eye of your PADI instructor, with the goal of helping you build your confidence under the water. You will do five adventure dives (six dives on the extended course) with each adventure dive giving you a taste of a unique style of diving, and once completed you’ll have earned your ‘Advanced Open Water Diver’ qualification!

Included within the course is the ‘PADI Adventures in Diving’ manual, which contains all of the useful information for each dive you choose to do, and includes a small knowledge review which helps you better understand and retain the information.

To start this specialty you´ll need to

  • be at least 14 years old
  • hold the PADI Open Water Diver qualification, or have a qualifying certification from another training organisation
  • have dived within the last six months and feel confident in your assembly and use of SCUBA equipment, along with reasonable buoyancy control

PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Specialty

The duration of our adventure under the water is controlled by several factors, but dive time (specifically ‘no stop limits’) and the supply of gas we carry with us are the two most important. Increasing our gas supply is easy, just increase the volume of gas you carry (see the PADI Tec Basics course), but increasing our ´no stop time´ requires the use of a breathing gas that has reduced nitrogen and increased oxygen. The PADI Enriched Air Diver specialty provides you with the knowledge and training to understand how and when to use oxygen enriched air (EANx) with mixes from 22-40% oxygen.

We offer two different styles of this course; ‘Computer’ or ‘RDP Assisted (tables)’, so which one is right for you? The majority of today’s recreational diving are done with dive computers, so the ‘Computer’ specialty is the preferred choice, extending the style of diving you already do with air (21% O2) to now include up to 40% oxygen. If you’re considering to progress on to technical diving then the ‘RDP Assisted (tables)’ specialty is a more suitable course, introducing concepts that you’ll later find in your technical diver training.

Both courses take just half a day to complete and are offered as ‘dry’, which means that no actual diving is required. We can offer diving with Enriched Air Nitrox, please just let us know when you book the course so we can arrange this.

PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty

As divers we are privileged to experience and see so many amazing things; from the tiniest nudibranch to the biggest pelagic animals, or the wreck of a small fishing boat to the colossus battleship. With a digital underwater camera system we no longer have to confine what we see to our memories, instead we can capture the beauty and majesty of all we see beneath the surface to share with family and friends . The PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty is an introduction to the use of ‘point & shoot’ underwater cameras, and provides information on camera systems, techniques for taking pictures underwater, along with digital file management. The PADI Underwater Digital Photographer Specialty requires two dives over one day, and combined with the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty manual, provides you with the knowledge and skills to get the most enjoyment from your underwater photography dives.

Stretching for over 200 kilometres from Gibraltar in the west, to Motril in the east, the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropical offers fantastic and varied diving. A profusion of marine life, along with a great underwater vista, makes for great diving in warm clear blue seas. All of these dive sites are within a 75-minute drive from our base.

La Herradura - 6 to 25 metres

A very beautiful bay that offers easy shore diving. Easy shore diving with the highlight being the ‘Tres Picos’ (Three Peaks). The western side of the headland of Punta De La Mona forms the rocky backdrop under the water, and it is this natural feature that provides us with the great diving. The seabed gently drops away as the underwater rock walls continue to tower above us, with the ‘Three Peaks’ rising to almost break the surface above us. The dive follows the base of the wall, and allows us to explore many of the gullies and vertical walls, and occasional swim through, where there is a profusion of aquatic life.  

Marina del Este – 12 to 40 mtrs plus

Situated on the east side of Punta de la Mona, this protected bay, with its small marina, offers multiple shore diving opportunities. The left of the bay has the marina wall, which is a shallow (18 mtrs) dive that follows the rocky outcrop and breakwater that forms the protection for the marina. Very scenic, lots of life, and possibility for long dive times. The middle of the bay has two reefs (14 & 25 mtrs), both which team with fish and vegetation, where the many gullies, cracks and boulders are great for exploring. The right side of the bay gives us our deeper diving (30 mtrs plus) and is a combination of vertical walls, rocky outcrops and deep gullies. This dive is where you can get to see the rare corals, large Groupers and if you’re lucky, the mola mola (sunfish).

For our deeper and technical diving we take a boat to the southern face of Punta de la Mona, where the walls drop near vertical from the surface to over 50 metres; spectacular wall diving!

Calahonda – 18 to 25 metres

A small coastal town east of Motril, where tucked into the very end of the beach is a great dive. The N340 road sits high atop the rocky sea wall, where our dive follows this cliff underwater, and explores the vertical walls. The start of the dive has a shallow reef that gently drops away from the cliff wall, and teems with juvenile fish and where the wall is festooned with soft corals and vegetation. 

This is also a great dive for your first night dive.

Rijanna – 9 to 18 metres

A beautiful beach with often no other divers or people to be seen! Our dive follows the rocky outcrop that drops into the sea, with plenty of chance for exploring the walls, and swim throughs that can be found. A memorable dive!

Me and my husband had a Fab holiday with stunning views and peaceful surroundings. Phil and Simone where very welcoming and always happy to do what they could to make our stay enjoyable. The room was spotless and comfortable. Good facilities to make you feel at home. The pool was the cleanest I have been in on holiday with Crystal clear water. I did not do any activities as I have a bad back but the guests around me where singing Phil praises and returning guests. I could tell that if I had gone on a trip I wouid have been in very safe professional hands. I was starting to feel disappointed I couldn't go as I was missing out! The food was lovely and Simones cooking is not tobe missed. I would definitely stay and have evening meals if you can as they are great value and so tasty. You do need a car unless you are doing a full packed week of activities. We explored all around the local area trying the different restaurants. Definitely recommend this for a holiday.

Phil and Simone are fantastic hosts, so welcoming with tea and cake on arrival even at 23.00! Phil even comes out to meet you at the nearest village Colmenar to guide you in. The Guest House is spotlessly clean, with views to die for. Breakfast was fab, as we're evening meals. Simone makes amazing cakes, not to be missed. The activities on offer at very reasonable prices are brilliant with lots to chose from, diving, walking, climbing, land rover safari,you will not be bored here. Lovely pool, lots of outside seating areas to take in the views. Make sure you hire a car as it is out in the hills so you will need it. Can't recommend Casa Mojon highly enough it was great....
