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 Master Scuba Diver.

Prerequisites

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 (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 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.
