About the Course

The Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about advancing your skills. You'll practice navigation and buoyancy, try deep diving and make three additional specialty dives. For every specialty dive you complete, you can earn credit toward PADI® specialty certifications.

This course is structured to run over 2 days (one weekend). On Day 1 students will complete 3 dives, including Peak Performance Buoyancy, Navigation, and either Night or Search & Recovery. On Day 2, students will complete 2 dives including Deep and either Search & Recovery, or Underwater Photography.

Independent Study - PADI eLearning®

Prior to attending the course dives, all students must complete the e-learning which includes interactive lessons on 13 popular specialty dives: altitude, boat, digital underwater imaging, drift, dry suit, fish ID, night, buoyancy, search and recovery, underwater naturalist and wreck diving. We require students at a minimum to complete the lessons for Peak Performance Buoyancy, Navigation, Night, Search & Recovery, Deep, and Underwater Photography.  We recommend students complete all of the lessons.

eLearning time commitment: 6-8 hours


Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving. Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive. If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).

Course prerequisites: PADI Open Water Diver, Junior Open Water Diver, or qualifying entry-level certification.
