Advanced Open Water
Become an Advanced Open Water Diver!
Once you become certified as an Open Water Diver, it does not mean that your training is complete. An Advanced Open Water Diver certification allows you to dive to deeper depths than a basic Open Water Diver certification, which means you will be able to experience more amazing wreck sites and explore deeper dive sites.
During the course you will be taught more skills that will make you even more comfortable with diving in a variety of environments. Your training will go beyond what you have already learned in the basic Open Water Diver course, and you will be exposed to new types of dive sites during your training as well.
The PADI advanced course is conducted over 2 days giving you approximately 15 hours of supervision and 5 dives in total. You’ll be exposed to 2 “core” dives being:
An Underwater Navigation dive and a Deep dive (to approximately 100 feet)
you get to choose 3 “elective” dives from a list to wet your appetite for that area of diving. The most popular are wreck dive, night dive, drift and photography but all are open to be explored and all are enough to allow you the opportunity to see if you would like to pursue this specific diving activity.

Nitrox Dive (Enriched Air)
Peak Performance Buoyancy Dive
