The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is designed to improve your underwater knowledge and skills. You can enroll immediately after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification regardless of your skill level. The course helps build confidence in navigation, fine-tune buoyancy skills and introduces you to different diving activities such as Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist, or Wreck Diving.
Scuba.com offers PADI eLearning for the Knowledge Development portion of the class, allowing our students to complete the academics at their own pace and in the comfort of their own homes. After completing your eLearning, you'll plan your learning path with your instructor, completing five Adventure Dives: a deep dive (beyond 18m/60F), a navigation dive, and three additional Adventure Dives of your choice to earn your certification.
During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time. The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have available locally. Scuba.com conducts the training dives in beautiful Southern California at either Casino Point Dive Park on Catalina Island or the popular Laguna Beach dive sites.
