PADI Adventure Diver – Build your scuba skills and gain more confidence

Complete three Adventure Dives (underwater photography, fish identification, etc.) and earn the Adventure Diver certification, a subgroup of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course.

The Fun

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 deep 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.

How can I benefit from this qualification?

With Deep Dive course completed, you are allowed to dive to 30m** depth. If not, your depth will remain at 18m. Your chosen dives will also give you the credit towards the first dive of the corresponding Speciality course.
(** guests younger than 14 are restricted to 21m)

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 your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.

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 your PADI Instructor.

  • PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent
  • Minimum age 10
  • For some adventure dives is a minimum age of 12
