advanced adventure diver

Go a little deeper, fine tune your skills and feel more comfortable in the water.

The Advanced Adventure Diver course is about becoming a more experienced diver over 5 dives. There’s a little bit of online theory and homework to go with each dive and there are no exams or pool sessions. This course is all about ocean time!

After your five dives, you’ll be more experienced, feel more comfortable in the water and simply enjoy diving more because you better understand the underwater environment. Also you will be licensed to dive to 30m .

As a Advanced Adventure Diver you will be certified to dive to 30m which will allow you to book on for deeper diving trips.

Three parts make up our course:


This is completed online through the E-Learning system from the comfort of your home. You’ll work through the 5 sections in about 3 hours time and don’t worry, there are no exams for this course.

Shore Dives

Spend a day with your Dolphin Scuba Diving Instructor completing three shore dives. One dive will be the compulsory Underwater Navigation dive and the other 2 dives will be a Buoyancy Dive and Wreck Dive.

We offer these dives most Sundays and you can start any week that suits you.

Boat Dives

Spend a day with us at Rottnest Island, Marmion Marine Park or (for an additional $50) the HMAS Swan Wreck to complete two boat dives. One of these dives will be the compulsory Deep Dive and the other could be Boat Dive, Wreck Dive or Naturalist Dive.

Boat dives are scheduled every few weeks and are subject to weather and numbers. Get in touch to find out when the next dives are or have a look at our online events calendar here.


Course Schedule

Our schedule for the Advanced Adventure Diver Course is very flexible! Get started with your theory from home any time and then book in for the three shore dives which are scheduled every Sunday (subject to availability). You don’t have to complete the shore dives and the boat dives in the same weekend, you have 12 months to complete them all.

If you would like to start with the two boat dives just give us a call to discuss on 08 9353 2488.



You need to have an Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organisation). The minimum age is 15 year of age .

Medical Requirements:

You will be asked to complete the Medical Questionnaire when enrolling in any scuba diving course with Dolphin Scuba. This questionnaire is designed to identify any health issues that could cause complications while diving. If you answer ‘no’ to all the questions you won’t need to do any more. If you have any answers ‘yes’ you will need to see a doctor for a Recreational Diving Medical before starting your course.
