Prerequisites

To take the Adventure Diver course, you must be

A PADI Open Water Diver or PADI Junior Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization)
Minimum age: 15 years old (10 years old for PADI Junior Adventure Diver)

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 an PADI Advanced Open Water Diver

PADI Adventure Dives can also count towards PADI Specialties. 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.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes.

In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there [...]

Why you should have Travel Insurance

While individual circumstances may vary, Aussie Divers Phuket highly recommends to anyone planning to visit Thailand and Southeast Asia to invest in travel insurance. Altho scuba diving is a relatively low risk activity, as long as you listen to your instructor/guide, travel insurance is cheap these days. It really can go a long way in any accident, emergency or cancellations/delays whilst travelling. Many travellers to Thailand & Southeast Asia hold a perception that as basic medical care is relatively cheap, there's little need for travel insurance. While it is true that basic healthcare in Southeast Asia can be cheap, the emphasis should be on the word basic — not cheap. True, Thailand does have a higher standard of medical care than other [...]
