Exploration, Emotion, Experiences

Explore, feel new emotions while discovering new experiences. That’s what the SSI Advanced Adventurer course is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to do it – it’s designed to advance diving, so you can get started right away once you’ve earned your Open Water certification. This course helps you build confidence and expand your diving skills through different Adventure Dives. You will try out different specialties, while gaining experience under the supervision of your SSI Instructor. You will log dives and develop skills while finding new ways to have fun diving.

Who can take the course Advanced Adventurer in Xaloc?
The Advanced Adventurer courses are perfect for those Open Water divers or equivalent who want to continue advancing in their training as a diver and who wish to enter the SSI teaching system.

The requirements to access this course are the following:
Have the Open Water degree or equivalent
Be 18 years old (if you are under 18, we can adapt your course to do those dives that are allowed by law)
Fill out a medical form (if this is correct, that is, there is no apparent contraindication, a medical certificate will not be needed but if it is not correct, then a medical certificate will be needed)
Diving accident insurance in force (in the same way, if you do not have one, you can contract a diving insurance directly in Xaloc, cost: € 6 / day or € 40 / year))


The SSI Advanced Adventurer course consists of two parts:

A) The practical part: consists of 5 dives

Buoyancy, Nitrox, Deep, Orientation and Wreck

– During the Deep Adventure Dive, the student will learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of diving deeper.
– The Underwater Orientation Adventure Dive will hone your compass navigation skills and help you navigate better using fin cycles, visual cues, and time.
– The Nitrox dive will get you started on enriched air dives and you will see the differences between diving with nitrox and normal air.
– The Buoyancy dive will help you demonstrate the benefits of good buoyancy control.
– The dive in a wreck will help you to experience the sensation of diving around it

B) Theory

You should read the 5 topics related to the Adventure dives that you are going to do, and complete the 5 knowledge reviews as well.

The theory is done online, that is with the SSI eLearning system – to start immediately. You will study at your own pace, through an easy-to-use, interactive program. You will also have access to the sections of other Adventure Dives in case you want to advance further in your knowledge as a diver.

(If you are under 18 years old, we must change some of these dives and add others to adapt to current legislation)
