As part of the PADI Adventure Diver Course, you’ll complete some Knowledge Development in your own time. This will be reviewed during a classroom session before your first dive in open water, or during surface intervals if time is not on your side.
The theory side can be completed at you own pace and with electronic and physical manuals to choose from, you can select the format that’s right for you.
Open Water Dives
Over the course of a day, you’ll complete three open water dives. These can be completed using Enriched Air NITROX instead of air, allowing for longer bottom times (if completing the Standard or Deluxe course options).
All three dives can be chosen from a wide selection of options, so the course can be tailored to suit your specific interests or ambitions.
On successful completion of the PADI Adventure Diver course, you’ll be able to explore even more sites with greater confidence.
We’ll provide everything you need. We pride ourselves on ensuring there are no hidden costs.
You’ll have the option of diving to greater depths, and with the chance to use Enriched Air NITROX during the Standard or Deluxe Course options, dive planning and ‘thinking like a diver’ will become ever more important.
For that reason, all of our PADI Adventure Diver course students are offered 10% discount on Suunto Dive Computers if completing the Deluxe Course.
Knowledge Development can be completed at your own pace but will be reviewed with the NHDC team at our Dive Centre before your first open water session.
Open Water dives are completed over a weekend. So you truly get to experience diving in different conditions or locations the dives will take place at Stoney Cove with courses arranged on a regular basis.
New Horizons aims to be flexible with arranging courses to suit your schedule so if the scheduled dates are not convenient please give us a call to discuss suitable alternatives.
Some Adventure Dive options may benefit from being completed while on one of our trips; ask the NHDC team for full details. Discounts may apply.
Each of the Adventure dives completed during the PADI Adventure Diver course can be counted as the first dive of each corresponding PADI Specialty. For example, if you choose to complete the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Adventure dive during the course, you will only need to complete one more training dive to have earned yourself the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Certification. Simple!
On all of our PADI Adventure Diver course options you will receive…
- Coaching and on-going support from an experienced, passionate and professional PADI Instructor
- Three open water dives, usually over 1 day, lasting a minimum of 90 minutes underwater.
- FREE rental of all required equipment (including, but not limited to: cylinders & Nitrox or air fills, BCD, regulators, dive computers, drysuit & undersuit, specialist equipment [e.g. compasses, delayed surface marker buoys])
- Course materials
- PADI Certification
Our dives are usually completed in UK water, therefore we recommend you use a drysuit and undersuit for greater comfort. If you have no previous drysuit experience, we will arrange a pool based orientation session for an additional £40 before your first dive so you are fully prepared and confident to jump in.
Please note, our course fees covers equipment rental, PADI Certification fees etc, but do not cover entry fees to open water dive sites. These vary according to location; please ask for further details.
