The Adventure Diver Course is not a very widely known certification. The course consists of three so-called "adventure dives" which are the first dives of the respective diving specialty courses. All three of the adventure dives are elective and can be chosen among a number of options - peak performance buoyancy, search and recovery, boat, night, self-reliant, underwater scooter, underwater photography, underwater naturalist, nitrox, etc. For example, if a participant choses to do the deep adventure dive, this dive is the same as the first of four dives of the Deep Diver Specialty course. During the course participants gain further experience beyond the foundational diving skills which allows them to become more safe and seasoned divers.
