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 instructor to build your scuba diving skills and gain more confidence.
Have you always wanted to try digital underwater photography? How about wreck diving? Here's your chance because you can sample three dives of your choice, get a taste of what you like, and feel more at ease in the water, strengthening your underwater skills and letting you enjoy scuba diving more than ever. Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may be credited toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Speciality course. This means you can be well on your path to becoming a Master Scuba Diver.
