Advanced Open Water

Exploration, Excitement, Experience

That’s what the PADI Adventure Diver and PADI Advanced Open Water Diver courses are 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. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.


Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.


The PADI Adventure Diver Course consists of 3 adventure dives of your choice.  The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course consists of 5 adventure dives.  Deep and Navigation are required, the other 3 are your choice.  These course are offered anytime we have an open water weekend.  Students decide if they would like to meet in the classroom ahead of time or if they would like to do it all during the weekend.
