Dive into new adventures and see what specialty courses might be interesting for you.

SSI Advanced Adventurer

Once you’ve completed the first dives after finishing your Open Water Diver course you’ll notice that there is a lot more to explore and to experience. To do just that SSI has a variety of Specialty Courses you can take, but if you aren’t really sure what you like to do or what could be of interest the Advanced Adventurer is your choice.

While for a normal Specialty Course you have to choose one, the Advanced Adventurer let’s you choose 5 specialties of the list below. Once chosen you are going to do some theory and the first dive of each of those specialties. Besides giving you a wide range of experience and adventure, you can be credited with one dive, if you decide to complete one of the chosen specialties.


Receive your theory materials and do your final exam in your mother language.


Save time on your holidays and receive your theory materials while you are still at home and start learning before your course begins.

Shore & Boat Dive

The Advanced Adventurer consists of five Open Water Dives (3 from shore and 2 from the boat).


The depth limits for this course are 30m if you choose to do the Deep Dive or 18m if you don't.
