The Adventure Diver Course

The 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 after the Open Water course.

The Fun Part

Have you always wanted to try digital underwater photography? How about wreck diving? 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 Specialty course. This means you can be well on your path to becoming a Master Scuba Diver or Dive Guide.

What You Learn

You can choose what you're most interested in learning. Need to work on your buoyancy skills? Try the Buoyancy Adventure Dive concurrent training To Speed Your Advancement

All of the adventure dives have a Specialty component. At least five specialties are required to earn your Master Diver, so why not get started on them now? Some don't even require you to do a dive, just the knowledge development (e.g. Nitrox, or Equipment). Many only require two dives and the first one can count for your adventure dive or the adventure dive can count for dive 1 of the specialty. See your instructor and discuss these options, you might even be eligible for a special packaged pricing program.

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all your basic scuba gear including your underwater compass. Depending on which three adventure dives you pick, you may also try out underwater photography equipment, DPVs (underwater scooters), a dive light, a dry suit, lift bags, a dive flag/float or other speciality gear.

The Learning Materials You Need

Digital training options provide information on more than 16 types of speciality diving. You'll use them as a guidebook to improve your diving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures.

To take the Adventure Diver course, you must be:

  • A Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Minimum age: 15 years old (12 years old for Junior Adventure Diver)

Your Next Adventure

After your Adventure Diver certification you can take the next step by completing two more adventure dives. If you've completed four total adventure dives , you're an Advanced Open Water Diver.

Adventure Dives can also count towards Specialty Diver certifications. For example, if you liked your Night/Low Visibillity Adventure Dive so much that you wanted to take a complete Night Diver Specialty course, your Night/Low Visibility Adventure Dive can count as the first dive of that specialty.
