ADVANCED OPEN WATER and ADVENTURE DIVER
Once you have your Open Water Diver certification you can extend your learning and skills with the ADVANCED OPEN WATER and ADVENTURE course.
You’ll discuss with your instructor which dives to select. You must complete a Deep dive and an Underwater Navigation dive, and then choose three adventure dives, giving a total of five dives altogether.
If you do not have time to complete the full advanced course at one time PADI allows you to complete one advanced/adventure dive at a time. Not all PADI centres can offer the full range of PADI adventure dives because of local diving conditions.
Before you begin, you must have PADI OPEN WATER or PADI JUNIOR OPEN WATER Diver certification from any PADI diving organization, showing that you have completed a minimum of four open water dives.

- Certification for PADI JUNIOR ADVENTURE diver is for divers aged 10 years and over, and is for 3 logged adventure dives. As a junior you must still dive with a certified adult.
- Certification for ADVENTURE Divers aged 12-14+, is for five logged adventure/advanced dives
Age: minimum 10 years for ADVENTURE dives; minimum 12 years for all other dives except ENRICHED AIR, ; ENRICHED AIR DIVE minimum 15 years old
