Minimum age required: 12 years old.

Course details Price & booking

Private Advanced course in Cabo

When you book a PADI Advanced certification course with us we guarantee private instruction. This means that you can decide which electives dives are important to you instead of having to make a group decision and share electives based on those that others decide.

To earn the Advanced diver certification you must
complete 5 elective dives

These dives must include a deep dive (preferably getting experience beyond 30m or 100ft) and a navigation dive.

You can then choose the other 3 dives based on your preferences. These might include :

  • Peak performance buoyancy,
  • Night diving,
  • Drift diving,
  • Wreck diving,
  • And more…


The one to one experience will also guarantee that you will get the best value for money by moving at your pace instead of at the pace of others. You will also be able to stay underwater to perform only your skills according to only your air consumption: you won’t waste air watching someone else try and master a skill. And about skills, spending personal time with an instructor will ensure you develop and improve the skills you find challenging instead of watching other students master theirs.

Your instructor will be able to give you 100% full attention which in turn would give the optimal opportunity to become a better, more proficient diver. When we hire instructors they must have at least 50 certifications. Our current staff in reality have much more.

Become a PADI Adventure Diver

Don’t have time for the full 5 dive course?

Then you might want to consider becoming a PADI Adventure Diver. This shorter course involves only 3 dives and can be done in a day!

This is a pretty good way of upgrading a regular 3 tank dive by getting some one to one experience with an instructor. Did you know that most travel insurance only covers you to your certified depth?

So if you’re an open water diver regularly diving deeper than 60ft/18m you might want to consider getting the Adventure Diver with a deep dive elective signed off.

Maybe you want to spend more time with an instructor learning about how to improve your photo and videography skills? Or maybe you’re going diving next year in a place known for current and some drift dive instruction may be beneficial?

This mini day course is a really good way to tick a few boxes and get more experience past the open water level if you only have one day for diving.
