Advanced Open Water and Specialties:
After completing the Open Water Course, you may choose to further your diving education. The next logical step is the Advanced Course, the Adventure Diver. The Advanced Course is a compilation of 5 dives including a Deep Dive and a Navigation Dive plus 5 electives. Adventure Diver is 3 elective dives. If you would rather focus on a specific elective dive you may choose to do a specialty course which is either 2,3, or 4 dives in any one elective field.
Please see the list of electives below as well as a flow chart on the progression of courses In PADI vs SSI and NAUI.
