To take the Adventure Diver course, you must be:
- A PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
Your Next Adventure
- Minimum age: 15 years old (12 years old for PADI Junior Adventure Diver)
After your PADI Adventure Diver certification you can take the next step by completing two more adventure dives. If you've completed five total adventure dives that include deep and navigation, you're an PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.
PADI Adventure Dives can also count towards PADI Specialty Diver certifications. For example, if you liked your Night Adventure Dive so much that you wanted to take a complete PADI Night Diver Specialty course, your Night Adventure Dive can count as the first dive of that specialty.
