Adv Adventure Diver

You’ve taken your Open Water Scuba Diver Course and now you’re ready to expand your knowledge but you would like to see what is out there first.

SDI Advanced Adventure Diver Course will give you an overview of five (5) selected SDI specialties.

This course is intended to introduce you to each of the five (5) specialties, but not complete comprehension of the chosen specialty.

One (1) dive from each of the chosen specialties may apply towards a complete SDI Specialty Certification.

Why should I gain certification as a SDI Advanced Adventure Diver?

After your five dives and theory lessons, you’ll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water and simply enjoy diving more because you’ll better understand the underwater environment and the gear and equipment required for safe diving practices.

For most people after completing their Open Water Scuba Diver Certification, this is the natural progression on the road to furthering their diving career.
