Advanced Diver Course

The Advanced Diver course is meant for certified divers to learn and develop skills for scuba diving in different environments. The Advanced Open Water Diver course also gives you the knowledge and practice to deal with new challenges.

Continuing with your diver education is the best way to keep having fun while learning and practicing skills to help you dive easier and safer.

Other Advanced Recreational Diver Courses:

  • Advanced Open Water Diver
  • Enriched Air Nitrox
  • Deep Diver Specialty
  • Drift Diving
  • Underwater Navigation
  • Rescue Diver
  • Divemaster

This is one of the most fun courses you will take in your scuba diving career. Although a total of 5 adventure dives are required to complete the course, at Divers UnderGround, we’ll throw in a 6th dive. The course takes 3 adventure-packed days and 6 amazing dives in different environments.

Contact us to find out what you need to read in advance to enjoy your diving vacation in the Mexican Caribbean.


Taking the Advanced Diver course will help you improve your Open Water knowledge and skills. You can enroll immediately after your Open Water Diver certification. It will increase your confidence in underwater Navigation while fine-tuning your buoyancy skills. We will also introduce you to new diving activities like Wreck Diving, Night Diving, and Underwater Photography and Video.


Five Adventure Dives and an extra Practice Fun Dive:


A deep dive beyond 18 meters /60 Feet, a Navigation Dive, and three additional Adventure Dives you choose to earn your Advanced Diver certification. *This course fee covers your practical training fees, dives, dive equipment, and instruction at the Dive Center.


We’ll plan your Adventure Dives together. There are two required dives, Deep and Underwater Navigation, and you choose three more for a total of five dives, and we’ll use the 6th one for practice.

During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks, and time.

Additional Adventure Dives we recommend doing in this area are:

  1. Peak Performance Buoyancy
  2. Enriched Air Nitrox
  3. Drift Diver
  4. Fish I.D.
  5. Boat
  6. Wreck

You could get college credit for the Advanced Open Water Diver course.


Beyond using essential scuba equipment, you’ll use an underwater compass. You’ll also use the specialized gear necessary for the Adventure Dives you choose. For example, you would use a DSMB or Bouy during the Drift Adventure Dive. We will explain the equipment you need and suggest additional gear, such as a lift bag for search and recovery diving and drift diving.
