This course will certify you to dive to 120 feet anywhere in the world. You will also get to choose from three specialty courses (choose from Boat Diver, Underwater Naturalist, Underwater Photographer, Search and Recovery, Deep Diver, or Peak Performance Buoyancy). This course is a prerequisite to all the advanced specialty courses such as cave diver, rescue diver, wreck diver, Nitrox, etc.  Great diving and certification too!

During this course, you will do 5 dives and come out with a new PADI Advanced Open Water card.  Your expert PADI instructor will lead you on two core dives and three elective adventure dives.  A fun way to knock off another certification and go diving in Puerto Vallarta along the way!
