In the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, Deep and Navigation dives are 2 of the 5 required dives. Thereâ€™s a long list of scuba specialty dives to choose from for the remaining 3 dives. Boat diving, search and recovery, wreck diving, night diving or peak performance buoyancy are just a few. Your five dives, all under the expert guidance of your Shadow Technical Instructor, will be accompanied by knowledge reviews for each specialty dive. No formal classroom session, just a quick, but thorough, review and lots of diving. Your dives also credit towards the related PADI Specialty Diver course. For those of you who may be short on time, the PADI Adventure Diver course is a subset of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course and consists of only 3 dives.
This mid level Continuing Education Program is designed to enable the Open Water Diver to extend their proficiency in the water and to gain more supervised practical experience.
