The Fun Part

Have you always wanted to try digital underwater photography? How about wreck diving? 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. Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may be credited toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Speciality course. This means you can be well on your path to becoming a Master Scuba Diver.

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all your basic scuba gear including your underwater compass. Depending on which three adventure dives you pick, you may also try out underwater photography equipment, DPVs (underwater scooters), a dive light, a dry suit, lift bags, a dive flag/float or other speciality gear.

However, you may want to invest in your own mask, snorkel, and fins since these personal items are a lot more fun to use when they fit properly.
You may also want to wear a scuba wetsuit to enhance the comfort and relaxation of course and diving in general.

Already have your own equipment? Maybe you have a mask or fins? GREAT! feel free to bring it along. Anything you don't have, or might need, we have here at Galaxsea.

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI's Adventures in Diving Manual and video on DVD provide information on more than 16 types of speciality diving. You'll use them as a guidebook to improve your diving skills and prepare for new experiences and adventures.

The materials provide a comprehensive overview of all the scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept, you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Once you're a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures.

Your Next Adventure

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 a 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.
