PADI Adventure Diver
Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.
They’re what the Adventure Dives are 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 Course. The PADI Adventure Dives 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 instructor. The individual Adventure Dives builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.
The Fun Part: Your Choice
One reason you’ll love the PADI Adventure Dives is that you and your instructor choose from 15 types of Adventure Dives. You can try your hand at wreck diving, night diving, digital photography, boat diving, PADI Sidemount, Nitrox, Drift and many more.
The Adventure dives are the first dive of the full specialty course and means you can easily upgrade to complete the full specialty.
To participate in the Adventure Dive you must be (15 years of age and older) for Wreck and Deep Diver Specialties. Adventure Divers build towards becoming an Advanced Open Water Diver certification lets you continue on to the Rescue Diver. And, provided you meet minimum age requirements for individual courses, you may take Specialties such as Search and Recovery (12 years).
What’s more, Adventure Dives also counts towards Specialty Diver certifications. For example, if you like night diving and want to earn your Night Diver rating, your Night Adventure Dive counts as the first dive of the specialty programs.
The requirements for starting Padi Adventure Dives is to be at least 12 years old and to answer NO on the Padi Medical Questionnaire.
