PADI Advanced Open Water Diver 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. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your Aquatic World 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. 

 

You'll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to:

  • Underwater navigation
  • Deeper water diving  (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet)
  • A sampler of three more Adventure Dives


The Fun Part: Your Choice

One reason you'll love the Advanced Open Water Diver course is that your Aquatic World PADI instructor will introduce you to some exciting Adventure Dives including the Underwater Navigation adventure, Deep Water adventure and a selection of three other adventure dives like Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Diving, Boat Diving, Night Diving, Search & Recovery Diving and more!
