Advanced Open Water Course
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.
These dives boost your confidence as you build these foundational skills. Then, you choose three additional dives from more than 15 Adventure Dives to complete your course.
