Adventure Diver (195€)
Minimum age requirement 10 Yrs
The Adventure Diver course is a subset of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. Have you ever wanted to try digital underwater photography, fish identification or wreck 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.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 10 years old and want to take the next step can enroll in an Adventure Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventure Dives. This can be discussed with your PADI Instructor.

The ADVENTURE DIVER course can be completed in a minimum of 2 days. If you should be short of time, we recommend you to participate in the PADI eLearning programme. The web-based system lets you learn about seven of the most popular Adventure Dives at your own pace through an easy to use, interactive program. You also have access to an online version of the Adventures in Diving manual and can complete sections for other Adventure Dives as directed by your PADI Instructor. With this you acquire the theory with PADI learning texts and videos on your Computer or Tablet and can start to dive as soon as you arrive. Please schedule a minimum of 2 days for your ADVENTURE DIVER course in any case.
Upon your arrival at the base, you will be welcomed by one of our local and international Divemasters and instructors. You fill out the necessary paperwork and then you are sized up for your equipment, if you aren’t already carrying your own equipment. Once all the equipment is set up, you will have a comprehensive but compact dive and boat briefing with your group. This consists of important information about the dive sites, important local and special dive procedures, safety procedures, recall procedures, attractions of the dive site, marine life, dive profile, signs & signals, etc. Dive planning is quintessential to good, peaceful and fun dives, and we only aim for perfection.
Finally, we cast off! Once the equipment is loaded on the boats with the help of our staff, we take off to our dives sites, of which most can be reached within 20 minutes.
A two-tank boat-dive consists of two dives. If there is a significant difference in depth between the two approached dive sites, the deeper dive will be dived first (we dive with PADI and therefore avoid reverse profiling). If a diver hasn’t dived for a maximum of 6 month, the first dive would be shallow in order to get comfortable in the water and enjoy the dive.
Depending on the No-Decompression Limits, a dive is usually a maximum of 45 minutes.
The surface interval (depending on the planning of the Dive Computer and the dive profile) is usually covered by the drive to the next dive site. In the meantime, the equipment is prepared for the next dive. We will NOT go back to the dive centre between dives, unless absolutely necessary.
After your return to the diving school, we encourage you to talk about your underwater experience with tea and cookies. Our guides help you to complete your logbook entries and identify the different organisms that you witnessed during your dives. Diving helps create a bond between people, all coming from different parts of the world, but all sharing the same love for the ocean, and we provide a platform for just that.
