Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and interested in what life lies under the water can earn a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

You don’t have to be “advanced” to take the AOW course – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
The AOW Diver course is comprised of five different Adventure Dives. An Adventure Dive concentrates on a particular activity or skill within the realm of scuba – it is the first dive of a Specialty Diver course. Typically you will require 2-3 days of open water diving to complete the 5 skill dives. If you would like to save time on your vacation and complete your coursework in the comfort of your own home you can sign up for e-Learning⊕ instead of purchasing the required books. PADI e-Learning gives you the convenience of completing the coursework online, at your own pace, and not while you’re trying to make the most of your vacation days. Spend less time with your nose in a book and more time enjoying the sunny days and sparkling water on Maui by signing up for PADI e-Learning before your trip begins!
Maui Diving will provide you with all the scuba equipment you need to complete your Adv. Open Water course. There is no extra charge for the use of our rental equipment. We even include mask and fins with your rental equipment at no extra charge. If you decide that you’d like to purchase your own mask and fins after the class, we have a wide variety of options in our retail store. It is great to have your own mask and fins as you’ll want to travel with these items in the future to make sure all of your diving or snorkeling experiences are comfortable and fit you perfectly!
All of our Adv. Open Water dives are conducted on the beach, however many students choose to upgrade their Advanced Open Water dive experience with a night dive, a scooter dive, a manta dive, or a cave dive! Please call and ask about upgrading your course to include any of the additional options.
