Advanced Open Water


Exploration, Excitement, Experiences

That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it. The course is 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.

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

What will you learn?

You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives.
There are two required dives which are Deep and Underwater Navigation, 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.

During the Underwater Navigation Dive:
You will refine your compass navigation skills and help 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.

What scuba gear will you use?

Beyond using the basic scuba equipment provided by Scuba Evolution, We will also provide you with the specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. For example, you’d obviously use a dive light for night diving or a lift bag for search and recovery diving, a compass during the navigation dive or a sidemount configuration during the Sidemount Adventure Dive. Your PADI Instructor will explain any additional equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear.
