Scuba diving is a great recreational activity. If you have already completed the PADI Open Water Diver course, you know how great it feels. All the more it is worth to go a step further and improve your diving skills and qualifications on the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course.

In this course you will learn to better control your body while diving and you will learn advanced swimming and navigation techniques. The PADI AOWD course also increases the depth limit to 30 meters (100ft). The advanced scuba diving course is a great way to improve your diving skills and better understand the specifics of open water diving.

Why take the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course with Costa Rica Divers?

Learning comfort is very important, especially when it comes to diving. That’s why our courses are designed to be fun, but also to teach you many new skills.

One thing you can be sure of, you will only become certified with us if your skills allow you to do so. And we know how to do it.

What to Expect

During the theoretical part of the PADI AOWD course you will acquire theoretical knowledge from the textbook you received. Together with your instructor you will discuss the material you have read, and after receiving the appropriate instructions which your instructor will review with you, you will plan your dive. The theoretical part also includes quick revision – a short test to repeat the knowledge acquired during the course.

After the theoretical part, it will be time to check your new knowledge in practice. During the deep dives, you’ll learn the rules for deep diving and plan the entire dive on your own. During the navigation dive, you will improve your underwater navigation skills using a compass and natural reference points.

Depending on the additional dives you choose and the prevailing conditions, you will make another three dives. In total, on the PADI AOWD course you have to perform five dives in order to complete the course and obtain the Advanced Diver license.

At our dive center, we teach PADI Advanced Open Water Diver courses in Costa Rica according to the guidelines of the largest dive instructor organization, PADI. If you have any questions or would like to schedule your course, please contact us today.
