PADI Adventure Diver

PADI Adventure Diver

The Adventure Diver course is a subset of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. Have you always wanted to try digital underwater photography, fish identification or dry suit diving? There’s a long list of scuba adventures you can take part in during this program.

Complete three Adventure Dives and you earn the Adventure Diver certification. It’s a great opportunity to work with your instructor to build your scuba skills and gain more confidence. Get a taste of what you like and enjoy scuba diving more than ever.

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 10 years old and want to take the next step should enroll in an Adventure Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with us.

  • Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask us if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.

The Adventure Diver course consists of 2 parts:

  1. Knowledge Development
    You self-study the relevant chapters in the Advanced Open Water Diver manual and complete the knowledge reviews.
  2. Open Water Dives
    3 Dives

The minimum course duration is 1 day.

We recommend to choose the Deep and Navigation Adventure Dives, which are necessary for future upgrades to Advanced Open Water Diver and either Peak Performance Buoyancy or Nitrox Adventure Dives.
