PADI Adventure Diver

£250 / 2 Days

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.

What Will I Learn? 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.

What’s Included? The course fee includes everything you need to become a certified PADI Adventure Diver: course materials, kit hire, instruction and certification fee.


Red Duck will provide all the scuba equipment you’ll be using including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device, dive gauges and a tank. When you are diving in the sea, an 8mm semi-dry suit will be provided to maximise your enjoyment and comfort.

Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll learn to use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. For example you will need a dry suit for the Dry Suit Adventure Dive or a sidemount configuration for the Sidemount Adventure Dive. Your Red Duck PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as a dive light for night diving or a lift bag for search and recovery diving.


You will need to bring your swimming costume/shorts, a towel and warm clothes for after. Red Duck will provide you with a hot drink and a snack post sea dives.


Upon successful completion of your PADI Adventure Diver course, you will receive your certification card.
