Advanced Open Water

The Advanced Open Water course is designed to increase the experience level of the diver and is a prerequisite for the Rescue Diver course and other levels of more advanced instruction training.

The course includes five specialized scuba dives, each one uniquely different. There are two required specialty dives; Navigation and Deep Diving, the remaining three specialties are selected by the student.


We highly recommend a Night Dive as one of your selections or you can choose from the following: Dive Planning/Computer, Search and Recovery Dive, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Photography, Underwater Naturalist. The specialty dives you select can count towards a future specialty certification in that area.
