Malapascua is a great place to do your PADI Advanced Open Water Course. You can see many wonderful things and we have dive sites that are perfect for the 'themed' dives of the AOW course. You will usually do at least two of your dives at thresher shark site, the Night Dive has mandarin fish, seahorses and much more, and there are several excellent wrecks for your Wreck Dive.
And a very popular option is to combine it with the PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course. You will save time and money, but more so - the thresher shark dive is perfect for diving on nitrox as you can double bottom time! Which means twice the chance of seeing sharks! It’s also great for wrecks and our wall dives.
If it's been a while since you've been diving, we include a free refresher on your first dive 😊
