This program is for students who do not have the time to complete the Open Water Diver program, and provides you with the training and experience required to dive in open water environments under the supervision of a dive professional. You will earn the SSI Scuba Diver certification, which can be upgraded to the SSI Open Water Diver certification with additional training.

Open Water Diver Course – R6400

This globally-recognized certification program is the best way to begin your life-long adventure as a certified scuba diver.

Advanced Adventurer Diver Course – R6800

This program allows you to experience five different open water dives from five SSI Specialty programs without requiring you to complete the entire Specialty.

Attention: 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.
