Advanced Open Water Certification


Advanced Open Water Diver certification

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences!!! They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. We also include a breadth of knowledge development which includes dive planning, gas planning, dive theory, and physiology. We take a deeper look at equipment choices and configurations. Ultimately, the students will get into the pool for an Open Water review and then a challenging session to work on buoyancy, propulsion, trim, balance, and control. 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 helps to create a foundation of skill and knowledge that results in safer, more skilled, confident and independent divers.
