ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER LOCAL Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.

The Advanced Open Water Course with PAN AQUA DIVING

Just finished your Open Water Dives and excited to dive some more? Advanced Open Water Diver is your next step! The course is designed to advance your diving, so, as opposed to what the name might suggest, you do not need to be advanced to take the course. Through a series of five dives, you will expand your dive skills through different Adventure Dives as well as enhance your confidence underwater. Also, it’s the next step on your way to becoming a Master Diver, the highest non-professional rating in recreational scuba diving. 
Knowledge Development

Students can either do the eLearning or use the PADI Advanced Open Water Manual. Deep Diver and Underwater Navigation are required dives with the student/instructor choosing three more adventure dives each of which counts towards a PADI specialty. We will be diving at Lake Hydra near Bethlehem, PA. 

Orientation at Pan Aqua

We meet Tuesday night before the weekend. The instructor will brief you on the dives you will conduct and make sure you have all the appropriate equipment for the weekend. Peak Performance Buoyancy is the first dive we do, so we will have a pool session making sure we are properly weighted so we can get right into diving at Lake Hydra.

Open Water Dives

The open water component is really where the practice and education takes place in the Advanced Open Water class. Students will plan and conduct five dives as part of the course. These five adventure dives can then count towards the respective specialty dives that they represent. PADI requires both a Deep dive and Underwater Navigation dive. The other three dives we conduct are Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck, and Delayed Surface Marker Buoy.

Equipment

In addition to basic scuba equipment, which you can rent from Pan Aqua Diving, students will need their own personal gear. These items include a mask, snorkel, boots, and fins. A pair of dive gloves are also essential and are available for purchase.
