Mission Statement:

PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about building your skills to expand your experiences. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Divers hone theirs skills by completing five adventure dives in underwater navigation, deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres) and 3 more Adventure Dives of choice. Each Adventure Dive in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Courses. Building on what you’ve learned and introducing you to new activities, you will keen returning to have new ways to have fun scuba diving.

There’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away. – Sarah Kay
