Exploration, Excitement,  Experiences!

That’s what the 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 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. Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding Specialty Diver Course. Your advanced certification will also include enriched air nitrox training. 


Junior Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enrol in our Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your Instructor.

What will you learn?

You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. You'll do five dives in the course. Your class will decide which ones to do out of the following options;

  • Deep - Required
