The PADI Advanced Open Water Class consists of Five PADI Adventure Dives and Knowledge Development. Our Advanced Class is taught at local lakes, the Blue Hole in NM, and our private training site.


We also teach Advanced Class when we are on trips to offer students the option of achieving Advanced Open Water by the time a dive trip has come to an end. We require proof of ten dives before enrollment and a confined water skills check out before open water as per PADI standards. Students are required to provide basic dive equipment.
