PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty Course with Dive The World Indonesia

What better place to take the PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty course than in Indonesia, the centre of marine diversity for the entire planet. Here you'll see so much new marine life that you may have previously missed, learning about its behaviours, and the reef symbioses, underwater ecology and aquatic habitats.

Your programme will include 2 open water dives which may be conducted in 1 day, and will introduce you to different aquatic life and include an overview of responsible human interactions with aquatic life. Topics covered include:

  • The planning, organisation, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of diving in different aquatic environments;
  • The key differences between the terrestrial and aquatic worlds and their life forms;
  • Factual information that dispels myths of potentially dangerous aquatic life;
  • An overview of basic aquatic life groupings, interactions and associations;
  • Scuba techniques used to help preserve bottom dwelling aquatic life and minimise aquatic life disturbance.

Anyone 10 years or older with an Open Water license can join this course. You'll need to study the PADI Underwater Naturalist manual and watch the accommpanying video.

The elective Underwater Naturalist dive from the Adventures In Diving programme may count toward the certification requirements for this specialty. Interested in sea life? Then this course is for you!
