The course is a great way to expand your diving horizons, with a choice of 5 adventure dives that allows you to tailor the course to your own interests. These dives are designed to develop your abilities by introducing you to a number of exciting different diving experiences. The aim of the program is to have loads of fun underwater while learning new skills which will be used during many of your future dives.
As an added bonus, each of the Adventure dives completed during the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver program can be counted as the first dive of each corresponding PADI Specialty. For example, if you choose to complete the PADI Dry Suit Adventure dive during the course, you will only need to complete one more training dive to have earned yourself the PADI Dry Suit Specialty Certification. It's that easy.... Click the links above to give you more information about each of the PADI Specialty Diver programs.
