PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
Move up and experience real adventures with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver-Course. You will get to know the underwater world from a whole new and very interesting perspective. And the best thing is that it becomes even more fun to dive. Practical diving experience comes first in this course, meaning that there will be only short theoretical briefings at the diving site.
During five dives you have the opportunity to try some of diving’s most rewarding and useful specialty activities. Together with your diving instructor you complete the two compulsory Adventure Dives: deep and underwater navigation. These dives boost your confidence as you build foundational skills.
Then you choose three additional dives from more than 15 Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can go diving at night, check out the local wrecks in the area, try underwater photography or even fly through the ocean on a diver propulsion vehicle – all during your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. Each Adventure Dive in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course may also credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver course.
These skills make diving much more than underwater sightseeing. Plus, the Advanced Open Water Diver course takes you one step closer to Master Scuba Diver – the ultimate non-professional certification in recreational diving.
