Who can take it?

PADI Open Water Divers or 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 our instructors when signing up for the course.

If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

Here's how can you start now:

Option 1: Advanced Open Water Diver Online

Sign up for Advanced Open Water Diver Online – PADI’s eLearning option – to get started immediately. The web-based system lets you learn about seven of the most popular Adventures Dives – including the required Deep and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dives, plus Boat, Night, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist and Wreck Adventure Dives.


You study at your own pace through an easy to use interactive program. You also have access to an online version of the Adventures in Diving manual and can complete sections for other Adventure Dives as directed by your PADI Instructor. Your PADI Adventures In Learning E Crew Pack (data slate, emergency flotation signaling device and whistle) is included.

Option 2:  Advanced Open Water Diver On-Site

We will mail you the Adventures In Diving Crew Pack.  It includes your Advanced manual, data slate, emergency flotation signaling device and safety whistle.  You complete the Knowledge Review questions for Deep and Navigation Adventure Dives (these 2 specialties are required for completion of the course).  Then, choose from several other specialties, 3 total, and answer their Knowledge Reviews (we think Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck and Night offer the perfect variety for experience.  Other specialties include, Enriched Air (computer only), AWARE Fish Identification, Boat and  Search and Recovery.

Bring your Knowledge Reviews with you on the first day of diving, and we are ready to go dive!

Because of weather, or other unforeseen conditions, some specialties may be exchanged for another specialty toward your certification.
