Adventures in Diving

At DIVE.IS we offer the PADI Adventures in Diving Program which usually takes two days.
In this program you will work closely with our instructors to learn the skills and theory necessary to dive safely and have fun doing it. You will develop your current skills as a diver to practise planning and executing dives up to 30m depth with a buddy.

After successful completion you will be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, which certifies you to dive to 30m with a buddy anywhere in the world. This is a lifetime certification and is recognized by any reputable dive centre. You can also use your Adventure Dives to credit towards the correponding Specialty Course.

The PADI Adventures in Diving Program is a flexible and modular course. You will complete two mandatory dives:

  • Deep Adventure Dive
  • Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive

You then have the freedom to choose three of the elective Adventure Dives, though we recommend some of these:

  • Dry Suit Adventure Dive
  • Night Adventure Dive (seasonal)
  • Digital Underwater Photography Adventure Dive
  • Peak Performance Buoyancy Adventure Dive
  • Naturalist Adventure Dive

You will complete these modules through independent study and open water training sessions. You will work with your instructor in advance to determine the Adventure Dives to be completed.

Certified PADI Advanced Open Water Divers can:

  • Plan, organize and execute dives with a certified buddy.
  • Take excursion and training dives at dive centres and resorts around the world.
  • Receive air fills for scuba cylinders.
  • Register and participate in the PADI Rescue Diver Course.
  • Register and participate in selected PADI Specialty Courses.
