course description:

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about.
And no, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed so you can go straight into it after the PADI Open Water Diver course.

The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water.

The PADI AOWD is the second level qualification in the American international system, following the PADI Open Water Diver qualification (OWD). At the OWD level divers gain basic knowledge of skills, equipment and theory to safely explore the underwater realm to a depth of about 18 metres (60 ft).
The PADI AOWD focuses on refining these skills, allowing the diver to explore a broader variety of diving to a maximum of 30 metres (100 ft) deep. The course contains 2 mandatory specialities and knowledge (navigation and deep speciality), whilst the other portion of the course consists of free elective specialities .
