The Adventures in Diving program immediately links from the Open Water Diver certification and is a course designed to customise your continuing education to fit your personal interests and demands. You choose various scuba diving activities from a list of electives that include Deep, Dive Propulsion Vehicle (DPV), Night, Wreck, Digital Photography, Navigation, Peak Performance Buoyancy and much, much more. Please see our Specialties page for a complete list of available electives.

The Adventures in Diving program offers two different certifications. A scuba diver successfully completing three elective dives will receive the PADI Adventure Diver certification and if you complete three elective dives plus the two core dives ‘Deep’ and ‘UnderWater Navigation’ you will become certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.


The Adventure Diver and Advanced Open Water qualifications are conducted over 1 and 2 days, respectively. An Advanced Open Water Diver will be trained to scuba dive to a depth of 30m (40m with a Deep specialty), which will open up a large portion of the worlds wrecks and more challenging dive sites for exploration. Advanced Open Water is the most common qualification that students step up to after completion of the Open Water course.

Moving On

A PADI Adventure Diver only needs two more dives to become a full Advanced Diver. As an Advanced Diver you should focus on gaining experience before rushing straight into the Rescue course. Come and join us onboard the Laddavdee for some diving day trips or book a Liveaboard trip with us to the Similan Islands, which will give you exposure to different environments, depths and required skills and equipment.
