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 dive skill mastery 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.
