Ever listened to other divers discussing marine life that you've never even heard of. Not sure whether corals are plants or animals? Now is the time to brush up and improve your knowledge of the marine environment. Learn the difference between vertebrates, invertebrates and plants and determine which is which underwater. With your new knowledge you'll never be left out of the conversation again. Spotting the difference will soon become second nature!
With a few simple steps learn about marine ecosystems and the interactions between the aquatic life that inhabits them.
|One||Before the course, read the Underwater Naturalist specialty manual and complete some questionnaires.|
|Two||Discuss the questionnaires with your dive instructor and practice any skills above water that you may need for the dives.|
|Three||Complete two or three dives using the new skills you have learnt. Explore the local reefs with your instructor and have your breath taken away by the amazing beauty of our local reefs!|
