Adventure Diver

P.O.A


The PADI 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.

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

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI’s Adventures in Diving Manual and video on DVD provide information on more than 16 types of specialty diving. You’ll use them as a guidebook to improve your diving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures.

Curious about night diving? Flip to the night diving chapter. Once you’ve previewed the skills, your instructor will guide you on your first night diving adventure. Having trouble with underwater navigation? Review the underwater navigation section then sign up for the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive with your PADI Instructor.

Prerequisites

To take the Adventure Diver course, you must be

  • PADI Open Water Diver or PADI Junior Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Minimum age: 15 years old (10 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 an PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

PADI Adventure Dives can also count towards PADI Specialties. 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.
