Advanced Open Water - $399 + Digital Course Materials

Ready to take your knowledge and love of diving to the next level? 

The Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about advancing your skills. The Advanced class includes five fun and different dives; you'll practice navigation and buoyancy, try deep diving and make three elective adventure dives of your choosing.

Most common elective adventure dives:

-Peak Performance Buoyancy
-Digital Underwater Imaging
-Fish Identification
-Boat Diver
-Underwater Naturalist
-Search and Recovery
-Night Diver

Our most requested class schedule/dive combo looks like this:

Day 1:  Meet at shop at 7:00 to get geared up, then head down to the beach and complete navigation, fish ID and peak performance buoyancy dives. You can plan on finishing up around 3:00.

Day 2:  Check in for your deep and underwater imaging dives (photo) or boat adventure dives from aboard the Maui Diamond II at 6:15.  The boat will provide snacks and lunch today and we'll head back to the shop immediately afterwards to complete logbooks and certification details.  You can plan on finishing up around 2:00.

...but of course we offer other combinations as well.

Taking the advanced class is a great way to refine the skills you already have, as well as explore other diving activities that interest you. This course is completed in only two days, making it easy to do if you're here on vacation, and is available to Open Water divers aged 12 years old and up.
