Course Date
The Advanced Adventurer course is the next step for Open Water Divers to gain more experience, confidence and increase the maximum depth you are certified to 30 meters.  

You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different speciality dives while gaining experience under the supervision of your Performance Diver Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

We have a few different ways for you to complete your Advanced Adventurer. Our most popular combo has one day shore diving around the greater Auckland area followed by a day out on our Local boat, taking in the many dive sites around Leigh and the Tawharanui Peninsula. You can even take a trip to The Poor Knights, or you can combine it with weekend away and complete your course entirely somewhere stunning like The Bay of Islands! (please note, trips to the Poor Knights and the Bay of Islands will incur an additional cost)

All required materials, local boat charter, and gear hire is included in the cost. The certification fee is also included.

The SSI Advanced Adventurer course consists of two main sections:

  • Theory - Theory is completed all online. There is some homework for you to complete before these sessions, so please register your digital learning code with plenty of time! 
  • Diving - The Advanced Adventurer consists of 5 dives with your Instructor. There are two compulsory dives, Deep & Navigation, but the remaining three are up to you, your course mates and Instructor to decide upon! You can choose from a huge range including Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Diver, Enriched Air (Nitrox) and more!

Why learn with Performance Diver?

This is a very important question! There are many dive schools out there, so why would you choose ours?
  • We have nice small class sizes to prioritise your learning, with a maximum of 6 students on Advanced Adventurer courses! This means that you get more personalised instructor time. 
  • We're always going diving! Once you're qualified, we have heaps of shore dives, day trips, weekend adventures and more at every level of qualification! Every weekend throughout the season there are trips planned, so you're never short of options. Our social nights are a great way to make new dive buddies and new friends.
  • ​​As a Performance Diver student you get exclusive offers and pricing on a huge range of dive gear. If you're not ready to commit to buying your own then no worries - we have heaps of rental gear at a great rate for you. We want you to go diving, so we'll make it as accessible as we can! 
  • ​Our Instructors are awesome - Here at Performance Diver, all of our Instructors are here for one reason - they love diving! Sharing the underwater world with you is such an amazing experience and we're privileged to be able to do just that.

Course Prerequisites:
  • Already be a certified Open Water diver or equivalent.
  • Complete the Dive Medical form. Click here to print the Medical Form for diving. If you answer yes to any of the medical questions you must complete a Dive Medical check with your Doctor and obtain written medical clearance before the start of the course as we can't allow you in the water without it.
  • Students must be at least 15 years of age. Parental consent is required for students aged 15 - 17 years of age. 
  • The course cost ($699) includes charter fees, unless otherwise stated. The charter fee is a standard 'day trip' fee for that location - eg the same as heading to the Poor Knights on a scheduled trip. 
  • Under standards as well as basic dive equipment (which can be rented) you are required to have a safety sausage, compass and knife. Tank hire, fills and all gear hire is included for the duration of the course. 
  • You will have homework to compete before the course starts. The course is heaps of fun, but is also intense - we have a lot to learn in our sessions, and they run to a very strict timetable. Failure to complete your homework means that you are behind right from the start, and are holding your group back. This is, understandably, not fair on everyone else and is likely to result in you being removed from the course without refund!
