The Adventure Dives are based on a diver gaining additional diving experience beyond Open Water while diving with an Instructor and can be credited towards the Adventure Diver/Advanced Diver certification. The Deep dive can not be conducted until the third adventure dive.
Required age/certification level
Minimum age: 10 years old and open water certification, or proof of equivalent certification by another training agency.
(Note there are special rules regards 10-15 year olds, some modules have restrictions for safety.)
The program is conducted via independent study and in open water diving exercises with a maximum depth of 30 meters / 100 feet. Ratios are dependent on the environment and the age of the participants.
The independent study is supported via knowledge reviews which are reviewed by the instructor.
There is no time scale for the adventure diving program as each diver decides which modules are of interest, and the time scale of the modules in agreement with the instructor.
Each diver must have a snorkel, mask, fins, scuba cylinder, buoyancy control device with low-pressure inflator, a regulator, a secondary air source, a submersible pressure gauge, a dive knife, and a compass.
