Marine conservation courses

We also offer an exclusive range of eco-orientated specialty courses conducted by our experienced PADI Course Director. These conservation dive courses include Whale Shark Awareness, Manta Ray Awareness, Turtle Awareness & Shark Conservation Diver. These courses are only offered for minimum 3 divers on a selection of trip dates during whale shark & manta ray season (January-March). See eco-education box below. Contact us if you are interested in adding eco education to your liveaboard trip.
