Two or Three Day Advanced Course

Advance your scuba diving skills with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification. When you join us, we help you develop your understanding of diving and build the confidence to take on more advanced dives. This is an all-inclusive scuba diving experience with two certified boat dives, rental gear, eLearning, instruction, and certification fees.

Included in this Honolulu Advanced Open Water Diver course are five adventurous scuba dives under the direct supervision of the instructor, like deep, drift, boat, and wreck dives, as well as the useful navigation dives at some at our favorite Oahu dive sites .

These required five scuba dives can be completed on two charters at our Hawaii dive shops if one of the charters is a Sunday three tanks charter.  If a Sunday does not fit into you dive schedule, then you will need to participate in three two tank charters.  However, you can do two 2 tank charters in one day if time is an issue.  Also, each dive in the Advanced Open Water PADI Course counts towards “Dive One” of the corresponding specialty PADI certification. You may be able to finish a whole specialty course on your sixth dive of your Advanced scuba diving course. A discount will apply to that specialty course!
