Training that focuses on your safety

Continue Your Adventure

This program allows you to experience five different open water dives from five SSI Specialty programs without requiring you to complete the entire Specialty. If you are unsure of your next step, this is the perfect way to advance your dive skills and experience, and to identify which Specialty programs interest you. You will earn the SSI Advanced Adventurer certification after completing this program.

Please Note: The Advanced Adventurer certification is not counted towards the AOWD Recognition. To achieve one or more specialty certification(s) for the AOWD, you may decide to complete one or more of these specialties. Your dives from the Advanced Adventurer course will of course be counted.

  • Be at least 12 years old and hold Open Water Certification.
  • Complete and sign a confidential medical questionnaire.
    If certain medical conditions exist, you must have a signature from a physician.
