    It depends. But, assuming you are asking about the PADI Advanced class:

    Dive is conducted between 18 meters/60 feet and 30 meters/100 feet. For Junior Divers, 12-14 years – maximum depth is 21 metres/70 feet. For Junior Divers, 10-11 years – maximum depth is 12 metres/40 feet. Duration of dive is predicated on maximum time that does not exceed the Recreational Dive Planner limits or the no-decompression limits of the student’s dive computer (as outlined by the manufacturer’s instructions). Of course, as a prudent instructor, I would not push anywhere near those limits. Minimum time is what it takes to complete the performance requirements per PADI standards, and divers spend the majority of time at 5 metres/15 feet or greater, and breathe at least 1400 litres or 50 cubic feet of compressed gas or remain submerged for at least 20 minutes.

    Performance Requirements
    1. With a buddy, plan and manage gas use, including
    determining turn pressure, ascent pressure and
    reserve pressure. Establish no stop and dive
    time limits.
    2. Descend using a line, wall or sloping bottom.
    3. Compare changes in color at the surface and
    at depth.
    4. Compare a dive computer (or depth gauge) reading
    to another diver’s depth reading.
    5. Ascend at a rate not to exceed 18 metres/60 feet per
    minute using a dive computer (or depth gauge and
    timing device).
    6. Make a safety stop at 5 metres/15 feet for at least
    three minutes.

    this is the SSI forum. so if you are asking about the SSI advanced cert your question is irrelevant.

    i assume as stated in the post above that you are asking about the padi adv cert. in which case you now have a very detailed answer.

    on a side note.....i have done the padi adv course a number of years ago and can tell you i only did #2 and #6 from the list above. none of the other stuff. shocking i know. :) perhaps the standards were less detailed back then

    VI. DEPTH LIMITATIONS
    All open water training dives must be conducted at depths between 15 feet and 100 feet.
    The maximum depth for 12- to 14-year-old students during training dives is 60 feet, with the exception of the Adventure
    Deep Dive where the maximum depth is 70 feet.
    The maximum depth for all 10- and 11-year-old students during training dives is 40 feet.

    there is no requirement to perform a "deep" dive. above are the depth limitations directly from the standards. time will be based on no deco limits, gas consumption, and you tolerance for the cold (if diving in canada :) ) all ssi dives must be at least 15 feet for 15 minutes. i hope hat helps.

    Oops, so sorry, that will teach me to check the sub-forum title before a post. Mods, if you want to move my post out that is OK by me, or delete as necessary.

    Cheers,
