Exploration, Adrenaline, Senses
This is what the PADI AOWD (Advanced Open Water Diver) course is all about. You don’t have to be “Advanced” to take this course – it was designed to advance your diving so that you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certificate.
The course will help you build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different types of Dive. You try various specialties while gaining experience under the guidance of your PADI Instructor. You log dives in your personal records and develop skills as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
Who is this course for
PADI Open Water Divers (Junior) who are at least 12 years old can step up and register in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in different Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.
If you’re already an Adventure Diver, all you need to complete is two more Adventure Dives to obtain your Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
SCUBA Gears used
You learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. The equipment you wear varies, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropical, temperatures or cold water. Your PADI Instructor will explain the material you need and may suggest additional educational materials, such as the required logbook.
