PADI Adventure Diver & Advanced Open Water Diver Course
Who should take this courses?
Exploration, Excitement and Experiences ... that's what these courses are all about. The Adventure Diver course is a subset of the Advanced Open Water Diver course. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take them - they are designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. These courses help to build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience and more confidence under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives, get a taste of what you like and what interests you, and at the same time you develop new capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving and enjoying your new activity more than ever.
Have you always wanted to try digital underwater photography, use a diver propulsion vehicle (DPV) or get better at compass navigation? There’s a long list of scuba adventures you can take part in during these programs. Complete three Adventure Dives and you earn the Adventure Diver certification or complete five Adventure Dives (required are the Deep and Navigation Adventure Dives) and you can earn the Advanced Open Water Diver Certification.
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. If not, please stop by the store and we will be glad to go over the list of available specialty diver courses with you.
You may be able to get college credit for the Advanced Open Water Diver course - check with your instructor.
What will 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 or Underwater Naturalist Adventure Dives. You’ll plan your path with your instructor, go over what you need to know and dive in quickly.
What do you need to do next?
Stop by the store, sign up for either course and pick up your Adventure / Advanced Open Water Diver Crew-Pak. Start reading the Adventures in Diving manual and watch the Adventures in Diving video (a book and DVD package). One of our instructors will contact you to schedule knowledge review sessions along with your Adventure Dives.
What scuba gear will you use?
Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll learn to use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. For example you will need a dive computer for the Multi Level Adventure Dive or a lift bag and rope for the Search and Recovery Adventure Dive. Your instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as a dive light to be used in low visibility, a cutting tool to be able to cut rope and fishing lines or a slate and pencil to write down notes during your dive.
