Advanced Adventure Diver Course

Advance your knowledge and brush up your skills with an Advanced Adventure Diver and Deep Diver.


This is one of the more popular dive courses after Open Water Diver. The Advanced Adventure Diver Course allows you to broaden your experience in the water, giving you experience in five specialties. Here at Dive Spear and Sport, those specialties are Deep, Navigation, Wreck, Boat and Advanced Buoyancy with Advanced Buoyancy being replaced by Dry Suit Diver in winter, to give our divers an understanding of dry suits and the benefits in cooler water.

Our Advanced Adventure course is coupled with the Deep Diver course meaning that by the end of your weekend of training, you will be certified to dive to 40m!


This isn’t a budget course or cutting corners. This is an intensive weekend of training, coupled with some theory during the week to prepare you to dive to depth. This course has been designed by an agency renowned for its excellent technical courses, and will ensure that you understand, execute and feel comfortable with the theory and procedures required for deep diving.


Over the course of three days, you will do four boat dives and two shore dives. This will includes your advanced dives of: Navigation, Buoyancy Control (or Dry Suit in winter), Boat Diver, Wreck Diver, Deep Diver AND THEN your final dive on the course will be your second dive required for the Deep Diver certification. By the end of the course, you will have two certifications and the recreational diving world is your oyster!


What you’ll learn

  • An overview of the Deep Diver and Navigation Diver specialties
  • Basic insight to three other chosen specialties as an introduction to that specific area in diving (Wreck, Boat, Buoyancy Control or Dry Suit)
  • Successfully perform skills listed for dive one for all of the above specialties
  • Get a good understanding of the basic theory in all 5 specialties
