Advanced Open Water +PLUS!
Learning to dive is just Step One towards a lifetime of underwater adventures!
Once you’ve got the basics out of the way, it’s time to turn our focus ‘outward’, and expand our diving skills, knowledge, and
experiences! Indian Valley’s exclusive PADI Advanced Open Water +Plus! Certification far exceeds the industries minimum
requirement, and includes a full day of academics, covering at least ten different aspects of diving beyond Open Water, plus
a minimum of six adventure dives. These include the mandatory Deep, Underwater Navigation, and SMB Deployment dives,
plus three additional adventure dives of your choosing. In addition to earning your PADI Adventure Diver and Advanced
Open Water certifications, you’ll also qualify for the PADI SMB Distinctive Specialty, ensuring your proficiency with safely
deploying your surface marker from depth as appropriate for drift diving and decompression dives. All of this is included
in IVS’s PADI Advanced Open Water +Plus! Program. And yes, there’s more - your adventure dives also count as the first
required dive for each of the specialty certifications associated with that dive, helping you on your way to earning your PADI
Master Diver certification, the highest recreational certification in the industry!
