“What was that fish?” is a common question heard after a dive. If you want to be the scuba diver with the answers, then sign up to our Ocean Insight package. You’ll enjoy your dives even more when you recognise the creatures that you see. After this course you will able to identify the main fish families and their characteristics. This will also help you to snap those insta-worthy pictures! By knowing the behaviours of common marine life, you will begin to learn which settings work best and whether they’re going to hide or shoot off out of shot.
Within the Fish ID specialty you will learn how to identify characteristics of local fish families and species. You will also learn the best fish survey techniques and strategies. An important part of this package is learning about Project AWARE activities that can help protect aquatic life. As divers we see the underwater world in all its glory so it’s our job to lead the way in protecting it.
Underwater Naturalist will allow you to get a better understanding about the local ecosystem. You will see new things, even in the most familiar dive sites. Knowledge about the ecosystem helps to figure out where marine life can be found as well as understanding how an ecosystem can change.
Taking photos whilst diving has become incredibly common but to get those perfect shots takes some time, knowledge and preplanning! The underwater Photography specialty will teach you how to choose the right underwater camera system for you.
