The Adventure Diver course is a certification halfway between Open Water and Advanced Open Water. You make 3 dives, all of which are part of the Advanced course and you can choose dives such as Deep, Wreck, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Naturalist (Fish ID), Drift and more. The dives will count as credit towards the Advanced certification or towards PADI specialty courses. And this Adventure Diver certification only takes 1 day – perfect for getting more dive experience and a new certification card if you are very short on time!
If you want, you can complete theory online using eLearning – learn at your own pace, at home or anywhere you take your laptop or iPad. You can sign up for eLearning at the PADI website. Or you can simply get the course manual from us before you start the course and do some reading and answer quiz questions in the book. Unlike the Open Water course there’s no classroom time for this course.
