The Adventures in Diving program offers both the PADI Adventure Diver certification.

Why Advanced Open Water Diver?

After your five dives, you'll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water and simply enjoy diving more because you better understand the underwater environment.
What do I need to start?
  • PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
