ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.

The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course with THE SCUBA SHOP

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They're what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don't have to be “advanced” to take it – it's designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course.

The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.

You'll hone your skills by completing five adventure dives that introduce you to:

  • Underwater navigation
  • Deeper water diving (Typically 60-100 feet)
  • Wreck
  • Peak Performance Buoyancy
  • Night Diver or Boat Diver (Depending on which weekend you choose)


Prerequisites

To take this course, you must be:

  • A PADI Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organization)
  • 15 years old (or 12 for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver)


What You Learn

The knowledge and skills you'll get in the Advanced Open Water Diver course vary with your interests and the adventures you're thinking of, but include:

  • Practical aspects of deep diving
  • Physiological effects of deeper scuba diving
  • More ways to use your underwater compass
  • How to navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time
  • How to properly navigate and dive a wreck
  • Mastering your buoyancy
  • And much more depending on which weekend you choose


The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all the basic scuba gear. At this step most people have purchased their own dive gear. If not, no worries, as we have an amazing rental line. The mandatory items you will need to have for this class are; an underwater compass, dive slate, saftey sausage, whistle, and a dive light if you are doing the night dive. 


The Learning Materials You Need

PADI's Adventures in Diving Manual and available DVD provide information on more than 15 types of specialty diving. You'll use them as a guide to improve your diving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures.
