Exploration, Excitement, Experiences

That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Course is all about. During this course you will improve your diving skills by expanding your diver knowledge and gaining more experience under the surface.

During the course you will try out different adventure dives, gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI instructor. You will log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun whilst scuba diving.


What will I learn during my PADI Advanced Open Water Course?


PADI Advanced Open Water Course

During the Advanced course you will complete 5 adventure dives. The deep dive and navigation dive are mandatory. You instructor will help you choose the remaining 3 adventure dives based on what interests you most. Maybe you want to perfect your buoyancy in Peak Performance Buoyancy, or improve you underwater photography skills with the Digital Underwater Imaging dive.

Can I start the theory now?

Yes, you can start immediately by signing up for the Advanced Open Water Diver Elearning. This allows you to study at your own pace before your scuba diving course. Once you have signed up for Advanced Open Water Elearning you should contact your instructor at Puerto Rico Diving, so you can establish which sections you should complete aside from the Deep dive and navigation dive chapters.


Where will I be diving?

The dive sites will depend on which dives you choose to do as part of your PADI Advanced Open Water Course. We have many great dive sites waiting to be explored here in Gran Canaria, including the Marine Reserve at El Cabron which you can take full advantage of once you become an Advanced diver.

What do I need to bring?

  • Swim Suit
  • A towel
  • A change of dry clothes for afterwards
  • Open Water certification card or equivalent
