PADI Advanced Open Water Certification

PADI Advanced Open Water certification will hone the skills you learned in Open Water and take your experience to the next level.

PADI Advanced Open Water consists of 5 Adventure dives.

This class requires a core of navigation and deep dives with 3 additional  electives that can be any of the following: Dry suit, deep, night, Enriched Air, fish identification, wreck and many more depending on where you are completing the class. Students must complete the knowledge reviews from the AOW manual prior to class.

Students must come to class with SCUBA quality mask, fins, boots and snorkel, compass and light. BCD, regulator and wetsuit can be rented from the dive location or from a local dive shop.

Dives such as dry suit have a required pool dive prior to the open water portion. Discuss your preferences or recommendations with your instructor.

Divers must be 10 years or over and in good health.


Open Water is offered May through October in the Midwest. You can plan and schedule the dives as a referral anywhere you would like to go or plan a trip with our team and complete the class with the same instructor.
