They will teach you to anticipate buoyancy problems and to improve your buoyancy in a range of conditions. It also trains you to accomplish the best position for carrying out underwater research.

Eco Objective:
In order to truly understand our aquatic environment, we must first know about the composition and processes of the ocean as a whole. All our oceans are connected, and one minor change in one ocean can affect the entire ecosystem. The coral reefs component is the most rewarding section of the course and includes marine identification and night dives.  You will learn a lot more about underwater organism identification, including coral anatomy and biology. After this section, you will get so much more out of your dives. Our oceans are in a rapid state of decline and as divers we are in the perfect position to do something about it. But first we need to fully understand what is happening. The conservation section includes two ecological monitoring, reef restoration, and practical conservation dives.  Here you will learn what you can do to contribute to conservation and preservation of our aquatic world.
