Continue your Dive Education in Costa Rica


Done everything, seen all of it? There are hundreds of ways how to enrich your experience and finding new excitement: Whether it is exploring shipwrecks, finding and identifying marine life, taking photographs, diving at night, deep diving or learning to navigate a dive site, the team at Summer-Salt Dive Center is there to help you pursuing your passion through the Adventures in Diving program. Complete any five Adventure dives*, and you will earn yourself the Advanced Open Water Diver certification. This course is available as Junior Advanced Open Water Diver for Kids between 10 and 15 to let them experience the same adventures as their parents!  (Duration 2-3 days)

Move up and experience real adventure with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course. As you step beyond the PADI Open Water Diver level, you make five dives and have the opportunity to try some of diving’s most rewarding and useful specialty activities, such as deep diving, digital underwater photography, wreck diving and much more 
These skills make diving much more than underwater sightseeing. Plus, the Advanced Open Water Diver course takes you one step closer to Master Scuba Diver – the ultimate non professional certification in recreational diving.
With your PADI Instructor you complete the deep and underwater navigation Adventure Dives. These dives boost your confidence as you build these foundational skills. Then, you choose three additional dives from more than 15 Adventure Dives to complete your course. You can go diving at night, check out the local wrecks in the area or even fly through the ocean on a diver propulsion vehicle – all during your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course.
