PADI ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER Scuba deeper, explore night diving and learn to navigate!

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.

You'll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to:

  • Underwater navigation
  • Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 meters/ 60-100 feet)
  • An introduction to three more Adventure Dives of your choice

The Fun Part: Your Choice

One reason you'll love the Advanced Open Water Diver course is that you and your instructor choose from 15 types of Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can try your hand at Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Diving, Night Diving, and much more.

Prerequisites

To take this course, you must be:

  • A PADI Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organization)
  • 15 years old (12 for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver)

What You Learn

The knowledge and skills you get in the Advanced Open Water Diver course vary with your interest and the adventures you have, but include:

  • Practical aspects of deep diving
  • Physiological effects of deeper scuba diving.
  • More ways to use your underwater compass
  • How to navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks, and time
  • How to better use your dive computer and electronic Recreational Dive PlannerTM (eRDPTM)
  • And much, much more, depending on the Adventure Dives you choose

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all the basic scuba gear including an underwater compass. Depending on which three adventure dives you pick, you may also be introduced to underwater photography equipment, a dive light, lift bags, a dive flag/float, or other specialty gear.

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI's Adventures in Diving Manual and DVD provide information on more than 15 types of specialty diving. You'll use them as a guidebook to improve your driving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures.

If you can't attend the theory class(es) of the course, you can enroll in the Online Advanced Open Water Diver Self-Study Course which covers the theory component of the course.

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact SCUBAVERSITY.
