PADI Advanced Open Water
This course can be taken after completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification. It's titled PADI Advanced Open Water Diver because it advances your diving knowledge & skills.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.
If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
You’ll plan your learning path with DiveStyle by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.
- During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving.
- The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.
The fit and comfort of your personal equipment are key to having an enjoyable diving experience. As a minimum, we would recommend your own mask, snorkel.
Our friendly staff will help you select gear that's right for you when you're ready to buy.
We will provide all your core scuba diving equipment during your course including:
- Buoyancy Device
