Advanced Maui Scuba Cerification Course

Maui scuba diving becomes an addiction. So after completing your PADI Open Water Diver certification, you may want to dive deeper or go for a night dive. Enter the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. This Maui scuba certification course will increase your confidence and knowledge as a diver while introducing you to a variety of adventure dives. A long list of electives gets highlighted by the Deep Adventure, Underwater Navigation, Underwater Photography, Wreck Diver, and Peak Performance Buoyancy dives.

Complete your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course on Maui in two to three days. The scuba certification course includes five Adventure dives. Two dives are compulsory, Deep and Navigation, leaving you a choice of three elective dives to complete. Your new PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification will change your maximum depth limit to 100 feet. This increased depth rating allows all experienced divers to visit some of the best Maui diving sites.

Advanced Divers may use any completed Adventure Dives as credit towards a full PADI Specialty certification. Contact us for additional details regarding PADI Specialty courses. By continuing to build upon your experiences, you may ultimately achieve the most notable recreational diving certification: PADI Master Scuba Diver.

What to Expect for your PADI Advanced Open Water Course

Mornings provide the best visibility underwater so we meet our guests at 9am at the pre-selected dive location. The prefered dive location is based on conditions to provide you with the best PADI Advanced Open Water Diver experience. We’ll email you with all of the information, but most often, our meeting time is 9 am to take advantage of the best underwater visibility. We like to make two dives per day, so most often, you’ll finish up at around 3 to 4 pm.

Our mobile Maui dive shop setup offers you maximum convenience. We simply meet you with our scuba van at the beach, gear up, and walk into the ocean. Our white scuba van is easy to spot, so you cannot miss us!
