PADI Advanced Open Water Diver



You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your Letts Dive PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI specialty course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.

REQUIRED PERSONAL EQUIPMENT INCLUDES:

Mask, Snorkel, Fins, Boots, Gloves, Wetsuit BCD, Regulator, Tanks (Rentals Available)
Compass, slate, delayed surface marker buoy (DSMB), emergency signaling devices
Dive tables, Z-knife or shears, safety reel, and compass.

You may also use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose.

***Ask us about INTEREST FREE FINANCING (6 or 12 months), available for all learning packages and gear.***

Skill Level: advanced
Skill Details: You'll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives - Deep and Underwater Navigation. You will choose the other three, for a total of five dives. Based on this area and skills you will need throughout your diving career, Letts Dive recommends Peak Performance Buoyancy, Boat Diving, and Drift Diving. 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.
