Designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your Open Water Diver certification.

The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialities while gaining experience under the supervision of your Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

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

You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.

During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.

Course Standard is 5 Adventure Dives – Koh Chang Divers include 6 dives.  The 6th dive is conducted as a Fun Dive at the start of the course to allow the student to ‘get back’ in the water or a final fun dive putting into practice a combination of the skills learnt on the course.  Photographs are included in the course.
