- Advanced Open Water Diver Certification
Take Your Scuba Training to the Next Level
In only five dives, you can achieve the Advanced Open Water Rating. This certification opens up many exciting opportunities for you when diving with your Advanced card.
In the Advanced course, you can build your skills and confidence and further your diving knowledge with the guidance of a professional instructor. You must do two dives, Underwater Navigation and Deep Dive, which give you a strong foundation for understanding more advanced situations. Once completed, you’ll be far beyond your basic Open Water Skills. Then you get to choose three dives that introduce you to specialties and give you a taste of the possibilities of diving.
One awesome thing about Advanced dives is they’re all done in the ocean!
