Exploration, Excitement, Experiences: That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. 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 5 different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor such as Search & Recovery, Night Diver and Peak Performance Buoyancy. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.
At Dive West we offer the following dives for your Advanced Open Water certification: Underwater Navigation, Deep, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Night and Search & Recovery.
During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
