Advance Open Water Diver

The PADI Scuba Diver program is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for vacationers or people who only plan to dive a couple times a year.

Advance Open Water Diver takes you to another level in scuba diving. If you complete your Deep Dive, Underwater Navigation Dive and three Adventure Dives for a total of five, you can earn this certification. You can choose from: Night Diver, Deep Diver, AWARE-Fish Identification, Underwater Naturalist, Boat Diver, Underwater Navigator, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Multilevel Diver, Drift Diver and many more. As a certified PADI Advance Open Water Diver, you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional anywhere in the world to a maximum depth of 30 meters/ 100 feet.
After your five dives, you’ll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water and simply enjoy diving more because you better understand the underwater environment..


Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass and dive knife or dive tool. You’ll also use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. For example, you’d obviously use a dry suit for the Dry Suit Adventure Dive or a sidemount configuration during the Sidemount Adventure Dive. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as dive light for night diving or lift bag for search and recovery diving.
