Open Water Certification
Take Your Scuba Adventures Further
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Certification Course is designed to improve your underwater knowledge and skills. The course helps you build confidence in navigation, fine-tune buoyancy skills and introduces you to your choice of five different diving specialities such as wreck diving, night diving or underwater imaging. After completing your eLearning, 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.
Prerequisite: Open Water Certification
Local Advanced Open Water Certification Classes will resume after Memorial Day when local lakes are open and water is comfortable enough.

Complete online learning and then meet with your instructor and fellow classmates to practice and demonstrate rescue skills in mock emergencies.
