PADI Advanced Diver Course

The PADI Advanced Diver Course is the next level after PADI Open Water Diver. It opens up many more dive destinations and dive spots, since in many areas dive spots are restricted to Advanced certified divers if the spots are deeper than 20m / 60f or the conditions are less than ideal.

The PADI Advanced Diver Course is composed of 5 adventure dives and corresponding knowledge reviews.

Every course must include the Deep and Navigation Dive plus 3 other adventure dives, depending on what the particular dive center can offer. At Kontiki Divers you may choose from the following adventure dives: Night Diving, Peak Performance Buoyancy Dive, Naturalist Dive, Wreck Dive


  • PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent
  • Minimum Age: 15 years old / 12 years old for Junior AOWD
