Advanced Open Water


The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course is the next step for you that is already certified. 

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 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 Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit towards your Advanced.


At Underwater Connection you will take the following dives for adventure dives: Deep, Navigation, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Altitude and Underwater Digital Imaging (photo).

If you are taking this class on one of our trips, the dives will be whichever are best for the destination you chose. Ask your instructor!


UWC Classes prices do not include Student Materials. In most cases you just need one set of materials per household, so you can share it with your family and/or significant other! 

You can add the materials to your cart and have them mailed to you, or pass by our store to pick them up and start your course right away!

- PADI Advanced Open Water Manual
