You may log any three Adventure Dives, along with their KRs, to get the PADI Adventure Diver card.  You can get this cert. in a min. of just one day, which means you can move on to the PADI Deep Diver or Wreck Diver Course and to PADI Rescue Diver.  You can do your Advanced Open Water Diver Course after these certs..

    I have been to Malapascua before and seen the Thresher Sharks and Manta rays and loved it. I am now a MSD (just) and keen to move onto self reliant diver and/or Tec Rec…please let me know the costs etc.
    Kind regards
    Chris
