Ready to take your diving experience to the next level?


Course Overview

Whether you are newly qualified or have hundreds of logged dives, the PADI Advanced course allows you to practice your diving skills under instructor supervision, helping you to feel more comfortable and confident underwater. We all know that the best way of improving your diving skills is to get in the water. Therefore, during this course, you will mainly be diving! Complete five adventure dives to obtain this next level of certification. These dives offer the opportunity to try some of diving's most rewarding and useful speciality activities, such as deep diving, underwater navigation, drift diving and much more. Learning varied skills makes diving much more than underwater sightseeing. Choose 3 adventure dives to complement the compulsory Deep and Underwater Navigator modules: Wreck, Drift, Night, Fish ID, Search & Recovery, Peak Performance Buoyancy and more - the choice is yours.

Don't have 2 days, but still want to increase your skills? No problem. With a little theory and 3 dives, we can help you to gain your PADI Adventure Diver certification. After gaining your Adventure Diver certificate, if you would like to upgrade to the PADI Advanced Open WaterDiver rating, all you need to do is complete the remaining 2 dives with any PADI resort within 12 months of your certification date.


Diving Course Program

Students go over knowledge reviews before an adventure dive.

Theory

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 questions. Before each dive, your instructor will go over each answer to ensure that everything is properly understood.

Divers practice proper navigation techniques that help reduce anxiety and confusion underwater.

Compulsory Adventure Dives

5 Adventure Dives are all that stand between you and this certification. The Deep and Underwater Navigation dives are 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 and the Underwater Navigation course will teach you about navigating your way around a dive site using a compass as well as natural navigation techniques. 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 hone your buoyancy.

Divers explore the Glenn Nusa wreck on an adventure dive.
