The Adventure Continues with a PADI Advanced Open Water Course

The PADI Advanced Open Water course is designed to advance your diving and build upon what you’ve learned during the open water certification course.  The course will take your confidence and diving skills to new levels by gaining experience through five different Adventure Dives under the direct supervision of our PADI Dive Instructor.  The completion of this course will expand your access to more challenging dive sites and more way to have fun scuba diving. 



There are two ways to complete the academic portion of the PADI Advanced Open Water Certification Course. You can either pick up a hard copy of the Advanced Open Water Manual here at the dive shop or you could do it online with PADI eLearning.

The PADI eLearning is designed to let you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace. The in-water portion of the course is an additional cost to PADI's online course fee and is sold separately as eLearning Advanced Open Water Completion Course.  There you can find out more about how to sign up eLearning and the cost to complete the course.
