This course can be taken after completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification. It's titled PADI Advanced Open Water Diver because it advances your diving knowledge & skills.
This course is designed to improve your underwater knowledge and skills. It will help you build confidence in navigation, fine-tune buoyancy skills and introduces you to different diving activities such as wreck diving, night diving or underwater imaging. After reading your Advanced manual you will come into the shop for a bit of class time and if you are taking the Drysuit Adventure dive you will head into the pool to complete a Drysuit pool orientation then you'll make five Adventure Dives: a deep dive (beyond 18m/60F), a navigation dive, and three additional Adventure Dives of your choice to earn your certification.
If you have not yet done the Drysuit Certification with your Open Water Diver course this is a great time to add it in with your Advanced course. This course will give you the tools on how to properly use a Drysuit and the different buoyancy characteristics, it will also allow you rent one on dive trips! See below for more info on this course and the Advanced course.
