The PADI Advanced Open Water Manual includes information on the wide variety of Adventure Dives and Specialities which may be undertaken as part of the Advanced Open Water Diver Programme. Five Adventure Dives including the Deep and Navigation Dives combine to gain your Advanced Diver qualification.
Your Advanced Open Water Course takes you deeper and further into different types of scuba diving with an Instructor and is the natrual progression after your Open Water Diver.
Each Adventure Dive is the first dive of a different speciality which you can pick and choose with your Instructor so no two Advanced Courses are the same. Two specialities, Deep and Navigation, are manditory but the other three are up to you.
Once completed you will be a qualified Advanced Open Water Diver with a new depth limit, depending on your age, and a better understanding and confidence of different types of diving.
