The PADI Advanced course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. An Adventure Dive concentrates on a particular activity or skill within the realm of scuba.

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.

While you’re doing your AOW dives, you’ll be accompanied by a PADI Professional. They are there to answer questions and help you fine-tune your technique and learn new skills.

*Must be Open Water certified to begin this course

*Must be 12 years old to begin.

The dives in the Advanced Diver course are very different from those from your Open Water course. The Adventure Dives are similar to a regular dive, except that you focus on a particular diving specialty. 

Of the five training dives you complete, the Deep Adventure Dive and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive are both mandatory. As for the other three dives, you get to choose what interests you the most. Students in the AOW Diver course have very little classroom time and no written exams.

Sign up for Advanced Open Water Diver Online *OR* come in to pick up the Advanced Manual to begin your reading.
