 Adventure Diver/Advanced Open Water Diver

Cost: $230

Y-kiki Divers offers both the PADI Adventure Diver and PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certifications.

If you complete any three adventure dives, you can earn your PADI Adventure Diver certification.

If you complete your Deep Adventure Dive, Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive and three Adventure Dives for a total of five, you can earn your Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

Although there are many adventure dives to choose from,
the more popular quarry dives include:

• Dry Suit
• Enriched Air Diver
• Night Diver
• Peak Performance Buoyancy
• Search & Recovery
• Wreck Diver

After your five dives, you'll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water, and simply enjoy diving more because you better understand the underwater environment.

In addition, PADI Adventure Dives can also credit toward the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver certifications.

Reduced course rates are offered if you choose to “Add-On” another specialty at the time you sign-up for Advanced Open Water.

This Specialty course certification also counts as one of five Specialty certifications required for Master Scuba Diver certification. Take the Master Scuba Diver Challenge!

Prerequisites:
• No dive certification required

Materials:
• PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider crew pak (included in cost of class)
