This is the next step up from the Open Water Diver certification if you want to extend your dive knowledge. The course takes 3 half days over which you will conduct 5 open water Adventure Dives around Rarotonga. Each Adventure Dive is in a different field. You will conduct a deep dive and an underwater navigation dive, as well as 3 other elective dives. The theory is limited to self-study of the chapter to the specific dive that you will conduct.

If you are constraint by time while you are in Rarotonga, you may choose to complete only a few of the 5 required Adventure Dives with us and complete the remaining dives on a later date and/or in a different place. After completing 3 Adventure Dives, you may get certified as a PADI Adventure Diver.
