The PADI Adventure Diver course is tailored for individuals who have successfully completed the PADI Open Water Diver certification and wish to extend their diving skills and knowledge, but don't require the deep dive. This course is designed to enhance your diving skills, broaden your understanding of the underwater world, whilst retaining the maximum depth of 18m. Through a combination of eLearning and practical diving experiences, divers are prepared to explore  dive sites with confidence.


Course Structure

The Adventure Diver course offers a structured yet flexible training approach, allowing divers to explore areas of interest in more depths by completing three adventure dives. (Five dives if the flexible or tailor made option is selected.)



This segment involves studying various aspects of advanced diving by completing three knowlege reviews that focus on the theoretical aspects required to dive safely and responsibly as an Adventure diver. These need to be agreed with us in advance to check that thay can be completed at the dive sites we will be using on the day of course. 


Adventure Dives

The Adventure Dives focus on different skills and experiences. The Underwater Navigation Dive is required alongside further dives that reflect your interests and goals and the course option selected.



Upon successful completion of the selected Adventure Dives and associated knowledge reviews, divers earn the PADI Adventre  Diver certification.
