This program allows you to experience five different open water dives from five SSI Specialty programs without requiring you to complete the entire Specialty. If you are unsure of your next step, this is the perfect way to advance your dive skills and experience, and to identify which Specialty programs interest you. You will earn the SSI Advanced Adventurer certification after completing this program.
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.
The SSI Advanced Adventurer provides certified divers an introduction into Five (5) different SSI Specialty programs under the direct supervision of an SSI Professional.
The first open water training dive from the following specialty programs can be counted toward the Advanced Adventurer program:
- Boat Diving
- Deep Diving
- Dry Suit Diving
- Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN)
- Night & LimitedVisibility
- Perfect Buoyancy
- Photo & Video
- Scooter/DPV Diving

*NOTE: This certification program is intended to give new divers a variety of unique diving experiences that will hopefully fuel their passion for diving
and dive education.
