Typical class itinerary

    "PADI Advanced Class"

  • Watch the PADI Adventures in Diving DVD in the comfort of your own home or here at the shop.
  • Fill out the knowledge reviews in your PADI Adventures in Diving manual OR sign up for eLearning (see banner below)
  • Make an appointment to take the academic session(s) of the course.
  • Make an appointment to spend 1 weekend at an area lake (typically LakeTenkiller) to complete the training.

What will be taught?

  • The standard Bluewater Divers Advanced Open Water package includes dive #1 of 5 different PADI Specialties: Peak Performance Buoyancy, Night Diver, Search and Recovery, Deep Diver and Underwater Navigator. Think of the class of a buffet of scuba diving. Take what you want and leave the rest!
  • Upon request and for an additional fee you may substitute up to 3 of the 5 dives (any but Deep or Navigation) for other PADI Specialties. See the PADI Specialty Diver Courses for a complete list of options.

What is needed to participate?

  • Proof of an Open Water or Jr. Open Water certification (or equivalent from another training agency).
  • A full set of scuba diving equipment in good working order (can be rented if needed).
  • A primary and backup light for the night dive as well as a compass.
  • Course fees are $195.00

What value does the PADI Advanced Open Water class have?

  • Most divers that hold the PADI AOW card will agree that their diving skills and confidence are higher than before.
  • Divers that present the PADI AOW card at dive facilities, resorts and Live-Aboards worldwide get more freedom.
  • During the PADI AOW class you complete dive #1 of 5 different specialties. You can go on to complete the remaining dives of just 1 or all 5 specialties to master the specific areas of training you desire.
  • This class counts towards your PADI Master Scuba Diver rating which is the ultimate non professional certification level in recreational diving!

What’s next?
