Your second step! The Advanced Open Water course is designed to advance your diving. It helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different PADI Adventure Dives. You will experience different specialty dives, while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You will log dives and develop new capabilities, making your diving even more fun.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers, who are at least 12 years old, are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.
If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
Most of our Advanced classes are conducted over a weekend at the Scuba Ranch in Terrell, Texas or Beaver Lake, Arkansas. Check out the Local Diving tab for dates and purchase options.
