The PADI Adventure Diver course helps you get more out of diving by introducing you to new types of scuba diving adventures. It’s a great opportunity to work with your Immerse School of Diving Instructor after your PADI Open Water Diver Course to build your scuba diving skills and gain more confidence.
This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving. You’ll hone your skills by completing three adventure dives of your choice.
What do I learn?
You can choose what you’re most interested in learning. Need to work on your buoyancy skills? Try the Peak Performance Buoyancy Adventure Dive. Want to know what you’re looking at down there? Try the AWARE Fish Identification Adventure Dive. Choose any three Adventure Dives which interest you the most.

What does it involve?
To take the PADI Adventure Diver course, you must be PADI Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organisation), and be 15 years old (10 years old for PADI Junior Adventure Diver).
Once you have booked in with Immerse School of Diving you will need to complete a few forms and bring these to your first session – a Continuing Education Administrative Document; and a Medical Statement. Please ensure you read these in full before your session. If you answer “yes” to any question on the Medical Statement you will need medical clearance before you can dive – see our FAQs for further information.
Before your first Adventure Dive we will provide you with a PADI Adventure Diver crewpak which contains all the materials you will need for your
course. We will also provide you with access to a copy of the PADI Adventure Diver DVD. You will need to read the relevant chapter of your manual and watch the relevant chapter of the video before your Adventure Dive.
What is next?
Apply your new skills by joining in any Club Immerse activities at home or abroad to gain experience and make diving friends.
After your PADI Adventure Diver certification you can take the next step by completing two more adventure dives. If you’ve completed five total
adventure dives that include deep and navigation, you’re an PADI Advanced Open Water Diver. Upgrade to PADI Advanced Open Water for just £100.
PADI Adventure Dives can also count towards PADI Specialty Diver certifications. For example, if you liked your Night Adventure Dive so much that you wanted to take a complete PADI Night Diver Specialty course, your Night Adventure Dive can count as the first dive of that specialty.
