PADI Adventure Diver Cozumel
The PADI Adventure Diver course is all about gaining the knowledge and skills to become a better diver faster. It’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification.
The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of our PADI Instructors.
You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course or towards the PADI Advanced Open Water certification. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are 10 years old and over are ready to step up and enroll in a PADI Adventure Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with us.
If you already have a signed Adventure Dive in your logbook , you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the PADI Adventure Diver certification.
Sign up for Advanced Open Water Diver Online – PADI’s eLearning option – to get started immediately on your selected adventure dives.
The web-based system lets you learn about seven of the most popular Adventures Dives – including the required Deep and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dives, plus Boat, Night, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist and Wreck Adventure Dives.
You study at your own pace through an easy to use, interactive program. You also have access to an online version of the Advanced Open Water Diver manual and can complete sections for other Adventure Dives as directed by our PADI Instructors.
