The benefits of understanding the plight of our fragile aquatic ecosystems are available to all, both divers and non-divers, because the underwater world that we need to survive, is being threatened.
AWARE Fish Identification - The PADI AWARE Fish Identification course gives you the basic identification skills so you can recognise that “thingy type yellow fish” next time. Scuba Diving vacations are much more enjoyable when you can distinguish fish families and fish characteristics that are indigenous to different parts of the world.
Coral Reef Conservation - Learn about the plight of the world’s coral reefs, and how to become involved in conservation efforts to protect and conserve coral reef formations.
Digital Underwater Photography - There are two versions of the underwater photography course. Depending on which type of underwater camera you are using, there is the film or digital certification available.
Peak Performance Buoyancy - Neutral buoyancy skills greatly enhance your comfort and safety during all scuba dives. The Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course is one of the most rewarding courses that benefits every dive, learning about proper weighting, controlled ascents and descents, and trimming in the water for effortless, relaxing dives.
PADI Master Scuba Diver - The PADI Project AWARE specialty course can be credited towards the highest rating in recreational diving, the Master Scuba Diver.
