The PADI Adventure Diver course helps you get more out of diving by introducing you to new types of scuba diving adventures. It’s a great opportunity to work with your instructor to build your scuba diving skills and gain more confidence
The Fun Part
Have you always wanted to try digital underwater photography? Here's your chance because you can sample three dives of your choice, get a taste of what you like, and feel more at ease in the water, strengthening your underwater skills and letting you enjoy scuba diving more than ever.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may be credited toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty course. This means you can be well on your path to becoming a Master Scuba Diver
What You Learn
You can choose what you’re most interested in learning. Need to work on your buoyancy skills? Try the Peak Performance Buoyancy Adventure Dive. Want to know what you’re looking at down there? Try the AWARE-Fish Identification Adventure Dive. Choose any three of the following Adventure Dives:
Adventure Dives available to scuba divers 10 years old and older:
AWARE-Fish Identification, Digital Underwater Photography, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist, Underwater Navigator.
Additional Adventure Dives available to scuba divers 12 years old and older:
Deep Diver, Multilevel Diver, Search and Recovery Diver, Underwater Videography.
To take the Adventure Diver course, you must be
A PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
After your PADI Adventure Diver certification you can take the next step by completing two more adventure dives. If you've completed five total adventure dives that include deep and navigation, you're an PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
PADI Adventure Dives can also count towards PADI Specialty Diver certifications. For example, if you liked your Night Adventure Dive so much that you wanted to take a complete PADI Night Diver Specialty course, your Night Adventure Dive can count as the first dive of that specialty.
