Advanced Open Water Certification


Culebra, PR

Certification and/or Previous Experience Necessary


As the next course after Open Water, Advanced Open Water (AOW) is designed to increase your confidence and build upon the skills you learned in Open Water.  Go deeper safely (you will now be certified to 100ft.), hone your navigation skills, and start to perfect your buoyancy.  In addition, you'll cap off your 5 dives by participating in a few other specialties which are just the tip of the iceberg of all the fun specialties PADI has to offer! The minimum age to participate in the AOW is twelve (12).

Required Dives: Deep, Navigation, and Peak Performance Buoyancy
The remaining two dives may be any of the following: Boat, Digital Underwater Imaging, Drift*, Fish Identification, Night*, Search & Recovery, Underwater Naturalist, or Wreck*.
