If you wish to upgrade your certification and are short on time, the PADI ADVENTURE DIVER COURSE is the answer. Many divers wish to partake in training that allows them to dive to a depth of 30 metres. While this is possible with a Deep Adventure Dive, the dive isn’t registered anywhere online. This means that if you lose your Adventure Dive certificate, the rating is null. However, the Adventure Diver rating will allow any dive shop, anywhere in the world to see if you are qualified via the PADI database. In addition, exploring different styles of diving under the supervision of an instructor will help you to feel more comfortable and confident underwater. During this course, you will mainly be diving! Complete three adventure dives with the opportunity to try some of diving’s most rewarding and useful speciality activities, such as deep diving, underwater navigation, night diving and even a module that will help you to fine tune your buoyancy. Explore the many facets of diving with the Adventure Diver course.

(not inclusive of learning materials purchased directly through PADI, approx. USD 169)
First off, there is no exam! Instead, for each speciality dive, you’ll read a short chapter on the pertinent theory and answer a few knowledge review question. Before each dive, your instructor will go over each answer to ensure that everything is properly understood as well as briefing you on any new conditions you may experience.
Three Adventure Dives are all that stand between you and this certification. The Deep Dive module is required, but it is up to you to choose the rest. Your Deep dive will teach you about additional considerations to make when you dive to 30 metres. Enjoy learning about the differences of colour, pressure and diver mentality at depth.
Choose two additional adventure dives from the following that most interest you to complete the course: Navigation, Night, AWARE Fish Identification, Drift, Search and Recovery, Enriched Air, Multilevel and Computer, Digital Underwater Photography, Wreck, Boat, Peak Performance Buoyancy, AWARE Coral Reef Conservation or Underwater Naturalist. We always strongly recommend Peak Performance Buoyancy, probably the most beneficial of all modules. Complete underwater obstacle courses, backflips, silly games and more as you perfect your buoyancy.
