To take the PADI Underwater Naturalist Diver Specialty course, you must be a PADI Open Water Diver or PADI Open Water Junior Diver. (or equivalent certification from another organisation)
As with all PADI courses we will get you to complete the Independent study prior to the course. For the Underwater Naturalist Specialty course you will read the Underwater Naturalist manual, complete the knowledge reviews and have them checked by our Instructor when you arrive at our office
After all the paperwork has been done we will depart for two dives at Tulamben. During two dives you gain some great new skills and learn about:
- The major aquatic life groupings, interactions and factual information that dispels negative myths.
- The role of aquatic plants, food chains and predator prey relationships
- Responsible interactions with aquatic life
- The underwater naturalist’s view of organisms and their roles in the environment
After the knowledge review and two open water training dives have been completed we will issue your PADI certification. You are now a PADI Underwater Naturalist Diver!
