PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course

This course can be taken after obtaining the PADI Open Water Diver (OWD) certification, and is called the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification because it advances your diving knowledge and skills. So don’t worry, you don’t have to be an “advanced” diver yet to take it- you can start right after earning your OWD certification!


The Advanced OWD course is designed to help you become more confident underwater through different Adventure Dives, which will allow you the opportunity to try out various specialties under the supervision of your PADI instructor. While logging dives, you will diversify your skills, gain experience, develop new capabilities, and find even more ways to enjoy scuba diving!

You can also earn credit while taking this course! Each Adventure Dive you do may count as credit towards the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you have completed a specialty diver course already, talk to your instructor to see if you have earned credit for an Adventure Dive.


PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years of age are eligible to enroll in an Advanced OWD Course. Please note that young divers may only participate in certain Adventure Dives.


If you are already an Adventure Diver, you only need to log two more Adventures Dives in order to earn your Advanced OWD certification.
