ADVENTURE DIVER

Adventure Diver

The PADI Adventure Diver course helps you get more out of diving by introducing you to new types of scuba diving adventures. It’s a great opportunity to work with your instructor to build your scuba diving skills and gain more confidence.

Have you always wanted to try Digital Underwater Photography? Here’s your chance because you can sample three dives of your choice, get a taste of what you like, and feel more at ease in the water, strengthening your underwater skills and letting you enjoy scuba diving more than ever.

If you chose to complete only three Adventure Dives, instead of five, you will earn the certification of Adventure Diver. It’s a great way to start your path to become an Advanced Open Water Diver if you have very little time or wish to spend time doing something else on your holiday. The Adventure program includes the Deep Dive, which means that you will be comfortable going deeper than 18m/60ft from now on. You will also have the opportunity to pursue your Specialty Course training by taking the Deep Specialty course.

A.W.A.R.E. - FISH IDENTIFICATION

Have you ever been scuba diving and asked yourself, “What was that?” The PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification Specialty course provides you with the fish identification basics so that next time, you know the answer.You’ll find you enjoy your dives even more when you recognize the creatures that you see. The fun part about this course is you can use the skills you learn on every scuba diving vacation because once you learn the main fish families and characteristics it will help you decipher the species you see all over the world.

For example, a butterfly fish in the Caribbean has a similar shape to a butterfly fish in Southeast Asia, but their colors and markings maybe wildly different. If you know what fish family it belongs to, it becomes much easier to look up the local name or at least be able to intelligently ask the local scuba instructor what you saw. That works better than asking about a “yellow thingy with a funny tail fin.”

During two dives you gain hands-on (okay, eyes-on) experience in looking for and identifying the fascinating fish you see underwater. You’ll learn:

• How to identify characteristics of local fish families and species
• Fish survey techniques and strategies
• How to practice fish identification dive planning, organization and procedures
