Advanced Open Water


Ready to take the next step in your dive education?

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course builds on the skills you have learned in your Open Water course and is the first step towards mastering your scuba diving skills and extending your limits. The course consists of 5 dives.


All courses include a deep dive (below 18 meters / 60 feet) and a dive focused on navigation skills. The remaining three dives are location-dependent and caters to each student’s needs and goals; we generally recommend to students to elect for a dive focusing on buoyancy, a search and recovery dive, and a night dive where possible.

Do you offer e-learning?

Yes! We offer e-learning as the default; if you would like a more traditional format (paper textbook), please let us know.


Why are you more expensive than other dive stores in the GTA?

We limit our class sizes to 3 students, so our students can learn scuba in a safe environment and everyone gets the attention they need.

Where do you conduct your courses?

The Advanced Open Water course can be done in conjunction with one of our dive trips. We also offer courses held entirely at Cedar Hill Park in Wiarton, ON, or a combination of Cedar Hill Park, Gulliver’s Lake (Hamilton), and Humber Bay Park (Toronto). Choose your own adventure!
