PADI Advanced Open Water Certification

Take your diving to the next level!

Whether you’ve just completed your Open Water Certification or it's been 100 dives since, PADI’s Advanced Open Water Certification Class provides a fun and exciting next step in your diving education.

Like many of PADI's courses, the Advanced Open Water Certification program offers options to make the experience as fun as possible. The course consists of five certification dives. Of the five dives, students can choose three dives specializing in specific skills. The other two are determined by PADI as navigation and deep. Night diving is highly recommended.
