Learn about our oceans and how to protect them.


Become a certified PADI AWARE Specialty Diver

Shark Conservation

Through earning the Project AWARE Specialist certification, you gain awareness of key marine ecosystem challenges and learn actionable steps to contribute to their conservation.

Subsequent dives with this knowledge can offer a fresh perspective on the underwater environment. Witnessing firsthand the effects of human impact serves as a powerful catalyst for reevaluating our commitment to ocean preservation, ensuring its beauty and biodiversity for generations to come.

You’ll receive personalised guidance from our multilingual Instructors, allowing you to learn at your own comfortable pace.

They will delve into ocean conservation and enlighten you on the 10 Tips for Divers to Protect the Ocean Planet.

Our flexible teaching approach ensures that every course aligns perfectly with your holiday experience.

Day 1 - PADI AWARE Specialty Diver

AM – Paperwork, Introduction and academics.

PM – Head out to dive sites to gain more insight into the theory that you have been learning in the morning.

You will be looking at impacts to the ocean and using some or all of the 10 Top Tips to improve your dives and help protect the ocean and complete your PADI Project Aware Specialty Course.


While it is preferable to be a minimum PADI Open Water Diver, you can just take the theorectical part of the course and not take part in the dives and still earn a certification.

If you want to learn to dive beforehand, you can take the PADI Open Water Course before you start your PADI AWARE Specialty Course.

The PADI Open Water Course will teach you the necessary skills to be able to scuba dive to a maximum of 18metres, and make you able to see all the underwater issues our oceans face.
