The Adventure Diver Certification is a subset of the Advanced Open Water Diver Certification (AOW). AOW requires five adventure dives, each taken from a different specialty. Once you’ve completed three adventure dives, you can receive the Adventure Diver Certification.
Adventure dives are a great way to discover your diving interests. Because they all count towards the specialties they are taken from, you can use the Adventure Diver Certification to sample the ones you might be interested in pursuing to completion.
Minimum Certification: Open Water Diver (you can work on the requirements of this course while you pursue your Open Water Diver Certification)
All required student materials
One class session
One optional pool session
Two open water dives

You will need about three days to do this as one course. You can also casually schedule adventure dives and apply for the rating when you have accumulated three.
