Adventure Diver

Having learnt to dive and witnessed marine creatures for the first time, you will no doubt have a craving for more diving experiences. The Adventure Diver course allows you to continue your diving adventure, to explore special diving interests and to gain dive experience in new areas of diving. This course offers flexibility and will give you the opportunity to dive at more challenging sites, both in the UK and abroad, under the guidance of a PADI instructor.




The Adventure Diver course continues your open water training with minimal classroom and pool training. It will give you an introduction to three specialty areas in diving, under the supervision of your PADI dive instructor. You may customise your own training path and learn various underwater tasks that will broaden your awareness of the dive environment and improve your capabilities as a diver.


The Adventure Dives you complete may be credited towards the Advanced Course in the future. To upgrade to the Advanced Course you need to complete just two aditional specialty dives, including the core deep and navigation adventure dives if these have not been dives completed during the Adventure Diver course


Each of the dives may also count as credit to the relevant specialty course, thus making the specialties quicker and cheaper to complete if you wish to continue your education in a specific area of diving. Five specialties and the Rescue Diver certification qualifies you for the Master Scuba Diver rating, the highest non-professional rating in scuba diving.


Who Can Take the Adventure Diver Course?


PADI Open Water divers or other entry-level divers from other agencies may enrol on the Adventure Diver course. If you have non PADI certification or have not dived for some time, a scuba review will be required. Divers aged between 10 and 15 will gain the Junior Adventure Diver rating.
