    The PADI Advanced Open-Water textbook must be purchased prior to starting the course. Other equipment may be required depending on the open-water dives the student elects to take.

     Prerequisites: Minimum age is 15 (Junior Advanced Open Water 12-15); completion of Open Water SCUBA Diver; satisfactory completion of the SCUBA TUNE UP.

     A maximum of 3 Advanced Dives may be done in one day. The 3rd dive may not exceed 40 feet.

     Prior to each dive: Read the section of the textbook pertaining to that dive. Knowledge of the information in each section is vital to the success of the dive.
