 This is a great experience for people who have a couple of hours to spend.

Rather than 3 days to dedicate to finishing a full certification class.


 Many of our Discover Scuba and Discover Scuba Diving students enjoy it so much they plan their next visit around getting their PADI Open Water Lifetime certification!

 The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course. 

It has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.  Certified OW Divers can dive with a dive buddy, acquire air fills, rent/purchase professional scuba equipment, and explore depths near 60 feet.

 The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. This course builds on what you’ve learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities, new ways to have fun scuba diving and allows divers to go to depths of 100 feet.

The PADI Rescue Diver course is best described as “Challenging” and rewarding. 

Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know, how to prevent problems and how to manage them if they occur. You need to be Current for First Aid and CPR within the previous two years. Ask your instructor about Emergency First Response CPR and First Aid courses.

 Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program. Working directly with a PADI Instructor.

 In this program you will expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to

the professional level.  PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers. PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both the PADI Assistant Instructor and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.


As a professional diver, the Open Water Instructor, you can pass on your passion for diving and the water to others.  This is your key to starting your new carrier, opening doors all over the world.

The Boy Scouts of America worked in tandem with PADI to launch the Scuba Diving merit badge. Since then, the popularity of scuba diving is growing exponentially among the scouts. Much like scouting, the overall philosophy of scuba encourages the quest for adventure. It is a life changing experience that enables young men and women to embrace challenges in a whole new way. White River Adventures and Dive Company is a proud supporter of the Blazing Trails District and Ozark Trails Council to help Scouts in our area experience the adventure of learning to Scuba Dive.
