Would you like to try diving on a wreck?

Therefore, if you are interested in Wreck Diving for example, you would read the Wreck Diver Chapter of the PADI Advanced Open Water manual. Consequently, you would then complete the relevant Knowledge Review. Try and do this from memory, if possible, but of course you can look it up if you need to. Also you have a choice of PADI materials for your Course. You have the choice of PADI Touch, Lite Packs, eLearning as well as traditional paper. Before the dives your instructor will go through these with you.

Of particular interest is the wreck of the passenger ferry the King Cruiser and the famous Phi Phi islands. This is perfect for the Wreck dive. We also have the Racha Yai Wrecks and the aptly named Anemone Reef and Shark Point Dive Sites!

You are now a PADI Adventure Diver - Congratulations!

Now that you are finally a PADI Adventure Diver you are ready for a large number of PADI Specialty Diver Courses. This is because you have actually already taken the FIRST DIVE of the corresponding PADI Specialty. In other words Dive 1 of a Specialty Diver Course is exactly the same as the Adventure Dive. Or another way to look at it is that the Adventure Dive you have completed is exactly the same as the PADI Specialty Course with the same name. So on your Adventure Diver Course you have actually taken 2 Specialty Course dives! Congratulations!! Consequently you are also now only TWO Dives away from the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Certification.

Upgrade to PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

To become Certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver you need to complete another two PADI Adventure Dives therefore giving you the minimum 5 Adventure Dives. Please note that there are two core dives you must do:  Deep Adventure Dive and also Underwater Navigator Adventure Dive. PADI Specialty Diver courses go into much more detail and also have more scuba dives in the Specialty Diver area that interests you. For example if you have taken the PADI Enriched Air Diver (EANx / Nitrox) Adventure Dive then you would therefore only need to do 1 more dive to be certified as a PADI EANx Specialty Diver. The same with Drift Diver or Peak Performance Buoyancy, you would only need to complete 1 more dive in each to also become a certified diver in that PADI Specialty.
