Adventure Diver

The Course

The Adventure Diver course is a subset of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. Have you always wanted to try digital underwater photography, fish identification or dry suit diving? There’s a long list of scuba adventures you can take part in during this program. Complete three Adventure Dives and you earn the Adventure Diver certification. It’s a great opportunity to work with your instructor to build your scuba skills and gain more confidence. Get a taste of what you like and enjoy scuba diving more than ever.

Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.



Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Adventure Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – contact Desert Reef Outfitters for more information.

If you already hold a PADI Adventure Diver certification, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

The Learning

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 or Underwater Naturalist Adventure Dives. You’ll plan your path with your instructor, go over what you need to know and dive in quickly. You can choose any three of these adventure dives: Buoyancy, Navigation, Wreck, Search and Recovery, Rescue, Night, Photography, Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV), Enriched Air, and Fish Identification.
