Advanced Open Water

Advanced Open Water

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course. The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI instructor. This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Get credit! Each Adventure Dive in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver course.

You’ll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to:
Underwater Navigator
Deep Diver
• A sampler of three more Adventure Dives of your choice

• You must be at least 15 years old (or 12 years old for Junior Adventure Diver certification)
Open Water or qualifying rating.
