Adventures In Diving Pak



What happens now?

Once you have your adventure diver you can now go further by completing two more adventure dives that include deep and navigation and then you are an PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.

Your adventure dives you do can count as credit towards any PADI speciality diver course.  So if you do a Peak Performance buoyancy dive during your adventure or advanced course.  Due to the fact that the PPB course is only 2 dives you then only need to do one dive to gain that certification.

P.A.D.I. Advanced Open Water

What do you need to do the course?

  • PADI Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Minimum age: 15 (12 for PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver)

This course will take you to 30 meters for a maximum for the training dives and we still give you a night dive if you request it.  You will gain experience in diving from many different locations in different entry styles.  You will be under the supervision of an instructor at all times.  Your life of diving is just beginning here as you are now ready to go further in your certifications and knowledge.  During this course you will be navigating and experiencing deep diving.  You will also get to choose 3 dives of your choice and you can complete this course in 2 days. Our normal pattern for you is we will take you to either Palma Caves or Black Coral for your deep dive.  Stingray World will be your Wreck Dive or used as your navigation dive, in this case we use Condesito as your wreck dive.  We will take you to Las Rosas for a multilevel dive and we will drift the coast line along Stone City for a drift dive.  This is our idea you can all change this program if you want. There is no exam during this course but we let you do the Scuba Tune Up little quiz just to see how much you remember.

P.A.D.I. Rescue Diver Course (click for requirements)
This course will give you more knowledge and also give you the experience to expand your level beyond recreational level.  You will learn to look out for and assist other divers.  This is a serious course but very enjoyable.

This course will make you very comfortable in the water not only with yourself but in assisting other divers as well.  During your first two courses you were concerned with yourself this takes you to a completely different level.
