Aquaworld Cancun Advanced Open Water Certification

Are you an experienced scuba diving enthusiast who is already certified but would like to improve your skills? Our Advanced Open Water Scuba Diving Certification program will broaden your knowledge of diving techniques and allow you to participate in more technical dives. The great thing about this certification is that it gives you the opportunity to complete five exciting specialty dives. It is not just a certification, but a chance to discover the amazing underwater environments in the region.

After completing an orientation session with video presentations in an air-conditioned classroom, you will be ready to try the first of five exciting specialty dives. Two of the five dives are mandatory specialties; Underwater Navigation and Deep Diver are required. But you’ll have your choice for the three other specialty dives. Night diving and Drift Diving are two of the specialties that our staff recommends for this area. The great aspect of night diving is that it gives divers a chance to witness nocturnal species that are not typically seen on daytime dive excursions. The coral reef transforms into a completely different environment after nightfall. Other specialty options include AWARE fish Identification, Underwater Photography, Underwater Videography, and more.

Divers also have the option of completing the theory portion of this course online before arriving. Participants must already be PADI certified in Open Water Certification.

If you are interested in other PADI, SDI, or TDI, certifications or specialties, but do not see them listed on this website, be sure to call our toll-free telephone number to talk to our scuba diving instruction specialists.
