Advanced Open Water

Refine your diving skills and become a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.

$475 private instruction


This course helps you build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it, and you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water certification. You can try different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI instructor. Each Adventure Dive you complete for your PADI Advanced Open Water course can count toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a Specialty Diver course, ask your instructor if you can use that as credit toward an Adventure Dive.

“I've wanted to do this for years and it was as amazing as I had hoped. We were in the water for 45-60 minutes, with mantas right beneath us nearly the whole time, gracefully looping and over and over, often coming within a foot (or closer!)”
