The course is made up of five adventure dives, building on the diving fundamentals of the Open Water course. Navigation and Deep are mandatory but the other three specialties are optional dives that can be supplement with others when needed. . If you would like a different adventure dive just let us know – we’d be happy to talk to you about different specialty options. The Advanced Diver Manual is full on great diving knowledge so don’t feel like you have to stop there but the listed chapters are the requirements set out for the class. We complete these 5 adventure dives over 2 days which we do at the lake each Saturday and Sunday.

The form requires fully written ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answers (not Y or N or checkmarks, etc). If there is a ‘Yes’ on this form, you will need a doctors release prior to participation. Below is a link to the medical form for your convenience though an electronic version is also e-mailed to you upon signup.
