The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver program is designed for you to acquire more knowledge, fine-tune your diving skills, explore new environments, participate in new activities and discover new ways to enjoy diving while becoming more confident, relaxed and self-reliant underwater.
This fun, flexible program consists of knowledge development and 5 Adventure Dives. Deep Diving, expanding your certification depth limit to 100 feet/30 meters, and Underwater Navigation Adventure dives are required. You can then select three more elective adventure dives. Our most popular include:
Peak Performance Buoyancy – Look and feel like a pro with perfect buoyancy and trim!
Night Diver – See the String of Pearls! (Requires a minimum of 4 divers or more)
Underwater Photography – We have one GoPro available for rent if needed.
Drift Diver – Learn how to assess and safely dive in drift conditions and practice deploying a surface marker buoy.
Fish Identification – Learn how to classify and identify marine life regardless of where in the world you are diving!
The Nitrox Specialty can also count as one adventure dive. This includes additional instruction and you also receive a specialty certification. The discounted cost for adding this specialty to the Advanced is $120 (savings of $10).
Complete the knowledge development before your arrival and eliminate the need to study while on vacation! Not sure if you e-learning is right for you? Check out this blog to help make your decision.
