The Advanced Adventurer Course

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They're what the Advanced Adventurer course is all about. And no, you don't have to be “advanced” to take it – it's designed so you can go straight into it after the Open Water Diver course.

The Advanced Adventurer course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your professional Instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.

You'll hone your skills by completing 4 specialty dives that introduce you to:

  • Underwater navigation
  • Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 metres/ 60-100 feet)
  • An introduction to three more specialty areas of your choice but we highly recommend learning more about computers, nitrox, and buyoancy.

The Fun Part: Your Choice

One reason you'll love the Advanced Adventurer course is that you and your instructor choose from many types of dives to complete your course as mentioned above.


To take this course, you must be:

  • A Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organization)
  • 15 years old (10 for Junior Advanced Open Water Diver)
  • Have completed 24 logged dives by the end of the course.
