Adventure Diver PADI Course
Short on time? PADI® Adventure Diver Course is for you!
1 day min. | 3 Adventures Dives
No Time to get Advanced Open Water Certified?
If you already have a PADI Open Water certification and want to learn more about scuba diving but are short on time, the PADI Adventure Diver Course is an excellent option.
The PADI Adventure Diver Course is a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver subgroup and can be done in just one day!
Many divers wish to participate in training that allows them to dive to a depth of 30 meters. While this is possible with the Deep Adventure Dive, it won't be registered online. So the rating is void if you lose your Adventure Dive certificate.
However, any dive center worldwide can check from the PADI database that you are a certified Adventure Diver. Additionally, exploring different diving styles under an instructor's supervision will help you feel more confident and comfortable underwater.
During this course, you will mostly be diving! Complete three adventure dives with the possibility of trying some of diving's most rewarding and valuable specialty activities.

Explore the Ocean at night with lots of new cool stuff to spot, including the extraordinary natural phenomenon: Bioluminescence.
Wreck Diver Adventure Dive
Experience the excitement of diving into a shipwreck. Learn how to safety plan and execute a wreck dive deeper than 18 meters on the HTMS Sattakut.

IMPORTANT! -Flying after Diving
When planning your diving trip and your journey toward your destinations, always remember that you must not fly directly after scuba diving. It accentuates the risk of having decompression sickness.
The PADI guidelines are to NOT FLY during a 12 hours interval after a single dive and 18 hours after multiple dives. As often when it comes to scuba diving, take a conservative approach to safety, and whenever possible, avoid flying the next 24 hours after a dive.
If you intend to do multiple dives on different days during your trip, consider buying your own dive computer, as it will calculate the optimal time to fly based on your diving history.
Even more than other outdoor sports, diving is weather- and sea-dependent. Be aware that some sites might be inaccessible on certain days and that diving trips might be canceled due to dangerous conditions.
Luckily, Thailand has a fantastic climate almost all year round and this happens very rarely.
