Advanced Adventurer

Develop Your Diving Skills

Improve your scuba diving knowledge and skills while exploring some of Bali’s best dive sites! The SSI Advanced Adventurer course is a two-day course with five (5) unique specialty training dives designed to be fun, practical, and educational. You may select five specialties, in consultation with your instructor. Our recommendation is to complete the Deep Diving, Navigation, and Perfect Buoyancy specialty dives and choose three of the following:

  • Boat Diving
  • Night & Limited Visibility (requires staying overnight in Tulamben) 
  • Waves, Tides & Currents 
  • Wreck Diving 

Each successfully completed Advanced Adventure dive can be credited toward completion of the full Specialty Course if you decide to take your training further!

Safety is our top priority while we strive to provide an inclusive and supportive scuba dive training environment for all our students. Our class sizes are kept small, with a maximum of two (2) Advanced Adventurer students per Instructor.

What to Expect During the Advanced Adventurer Course?

Your SSI Advanced Adventurer course begins when you enroll and gain access to the digital learning materials, which you are required to complete prior to arriving at our Bali diving school. When you arrive at our dive centre for the day one of your Bali Advanced Adventurer course, we will finalize any administrative details and then the excitement of your in-water training begins! You will enjoy our comfortable, air-conditioned transportation to the dive sites, where you will complete two (2) open water specialty dives under the supervision of your instructor. During your surface interval, enjoy a nice lunch and the scenery!

On day two of your SSI Advanced Adventurer course, you will complete three (3) more specialty dives at some of the best dive sites in Bali. If you sign up for our Standard Advanced Adventurer course, you will travel roughly 40 minutes by speedboat to experience scuba diving Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan – some of the most exciting scuba diving in Bali! Our Budget Advanced Adventurer course will take you for three dives in Padang Bai on day two, which is a great option for those wishing to save some money or those prone to seasickness and prefer to travel by car.
