Exploration. Excitement. Experiences.

They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water diver course is all about.You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification This course is designed to help you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so that you can become more comfortable in the water in five specialty areas.You’ll do a deep dive, a navigation dive, and three other specialties of your choice (Night Dive, Search and Recovery Dive, Boat Dive, Multilevel Dive, Underwater Photography and many more). By completion, the student is certified to dive in depths up to 30 meters.

 Who should take this 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. If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.


We 'll plan your learning path 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, night dive and many more.
