Advanced Open Water Diver

The Advanced Open Water Certification is your passport to some of the best dives around the world.  In many places, AWO certification is required to dive.

One reason you’ll love the Advanced Open Water Diver course is that you and your instructor choose from 15 types of Adventure Dives to complete your course. You must complete two required Adventure Dives (Deep and Underwater Navigation) and then you can try your hand at an additional three elective adventure dives.  Dives such as digital underwater photography or videography, wreck diving, search & recovery, peak performance buoyancy and much more.
