Advanced Open Water Certification Course


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 (afterwards you will 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*.

*Availability based on conditions

This price paid to Culebra Divers plus tax includes your instruction and in-water training, all necessary gear, and your certification card processing fee. Also paid to Culebra Divers if you do not already have it, $53 for the required supplemental PADI Advanced Open Water Crew Pak and $23 if you forget your training logbook.  The eLearning fees are paid directly to PADI during online studies registration and are subject to change ($183 as of June 2020).  Instructor gratuity for outstanding service is always appreciated and can be handed directly to your boat crew or discreetly given to the shop staff.

Please choose two dates from the calendar and we will follow up with a plan for completing the five (5) dives across these two days

Please keep in mind before booking: The flights from Culebra to the main island are low altitude flights; however, the experts at DAN still recommend 12 hours after a single dive and at least 18 hours after multiple dives or multiple days of diving.


  • Service fee if you have associated your online training with a shop other than Culebra Divers $87.50
