[Course Tuition] [Personal Supplies] [Schedule] [Rescue] [Openwater]

PADI's Advanced Openwater scuba course is designed to advance your diving knowledge and skills beyond the "openwater" level. So if you are ready to take your diving experiences to a new and rewarding level, read on. ADU offers a unique blend of classroom and in water training to help you explore a number of different areas of continuing education. Not only that, we make it fun!
The Advanced Openwater Diver course in not only the prerequisite for the more involved specialty courses, such as wreck, but it's also an opportunity to improve your overall diving skills, meet new diving partners, and become familiar with new dive sites and enjoy the continued guidance of a PADI professional. Your Advanced Open Water dives provide you with the beginning techniques for deep diving, night diving, and navigation. Plus you and your instructor choose two more elective dives from such exciting activities such as wreck diving, search & recovery, drift diving, multilevel, underwater naturalist, underwater photography, and underwater videography (some additional supplies and/or a lab fee may be required for some dives).

SCHEDULE - Classroom is one weekday evening usually with the 5 dives scheduled for the following weekend.

COURSE TUITION - includes the Adventures in Diving text, the Certification fee with PADI, all classroom and ocean instruction. Your five ocean dives will be conducted at local dive sites that are popular for the animal life and things to explore! The price is only $175.00 (based on training with a group, per person). Other benefits include: the option of equipment use for all course dives for only $50.00 (includes wetsuit, tanks, regulator, BCD, and weights), a $25.00 off coupon toward the next Rescue class.

PERSONAL SUPPLIES - Each student will need to provide a mask & snorkel, adjustable fins, coldwater boots & gloves, plus full scuba gear (see Course Tuition). A primary and backup light are required for the night dive, as is a compass for the navigation dive. Store personnel are always available to counsel students on the selection of these supplies. If you would like to invest in your own Scuba equipment for use during the course, any of the ADU staff will be happy to assist, or you can rent. Students will also need to provide two passport size photos for your certification card showing that you have completed the course and are eligible to enter the Rescue class, or the cave diving, deep diving, ice diving, search & recovery, or wreck diving specialties.
