Advanced Open Water is a great way to explore different types of diving. Advanced Open Water allows you to gain more skill and confidence in your diving abilities.

Advanced certification requires 5 dives. Required are a deep dive, and a navigation dive. The remaining 3 are dives of your choosing. The class is completed over 2 days. We will travel to Lake Wazee in Black River Falls WI, or Haigh Quarry in Kankakee, IL to complete some of the Advanced Open Water dives. This is also a VERY excellent course to take on one of our Florida trips. The cost of certification is only $175 if combined with our trip!
