ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.

The Advanced Open Water Diver Course with ATLANTIC EDGE

When you’re ready to take your diving to the next level, take the Advanced Open Water course. We’ll take you on five different diving experiences in one weekend—wreck diving, deep diving, search and recovery, and a couple of others. And as always, it’s fun!  Our advanced course is done over the course of two days. It consists of five ‘special’ dives—each one with a particular focus aimed at improving your diving skills. 

Among the many things, you will learn as part of this program:

  • Underwater navigation
  • Peak buoyancy
  • Wreck diving
  • Search and recovery
  • Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet)

Prerequisites

Students must meet the following prerequisites:

  • Be certified the Open Water Diver level (or equivalent)
  • Be at least 12 years of age
  • Be able to answer "No" to all questions on the PADI/RSTC Medical History form, or secure a physician’s approval for diving prior to the start of the course

  What is Involved?

  The course consists of two parts:

  • Knowledge development through independent study. We'll start the day by going over the five knowledge reviews from your Advanced Open Water Diver Manual (we'll mail your manual once registered). The knowledge reviews must be completed prior to arriving at the quarry.  
  • Open Water Training: Over the course of two days, we'll do five dives (usually 3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday).

Where

The course is taught during the warmer months of the year (May-October) where we’ll meet at Dutch Springs in Bethlehelm PA.
