ADVENTURE DIVER Get More Scuba Diving Adventures

The PADI Adventure Diver Course

The PADI Adventure Diver course is a subset course to the PADI Advanced Course in that it only takes three dives to complete and is structured to get a certification to students that do not have the time commitment or need to do deeper dives. You will get more out of diving by being introduced 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.

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 PADI Speciality course. This means you can be well on your path to becoming a Master Scuba Diver.

What 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. Choose any three of the following Adventure Dives:

Adventure Dives available to scuba divers 10 years old and older:

Additional Adventure Dives available to scuba divers 12 years old and older:

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

PADI's Adventures in Diving Manual and Video provide information on more than 16 types of speciality diving.To obtain your PADI materials, either online (you can buy that here!) or physical materials from our dive centre, simply contact and Book your course now. 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 PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Minimum age: 15 years old (12 years old for PADI Junior Adventure Diver)

Your Next Adventure

After your PADI Adventure Diver certification you can take the next step by completing two more adventure dives. If you've completed five total adventure dives that include Deep and Navigation, you're a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.

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