Big Blue Conservation - Eco Diving & Expeditions

Being an Eco Diver can mean different things to different people. It could simply mean that you have an interest in learning about marine life and conserving it or you may be interested in a career in diving and marine conservation. Big Blue Marine Conservation offers a wide variety of courses and internships to meet these different objectives.

Speciality Courses

We offer an extensive range of SSI and PADI Speciality Courses aimed at developing your diving skills (such as Buoyancy, Navigation and Photography) as well as increasing your knowledge of the marine environment (such as Project AWARE Specialty, Shark Diver, Ecological Monitoring Programme and CoralWatch).


A rock is not just a rock underwater, it's covered in sponges, coral hydroids and other invertebrates all working together in harmony. Imagine being able to identify and understand the underwater life you see - you will see so much more out of every fun dive. Also, improving your dive skillls through performance specialities (such as Buoyancy and photography specialities) can make your dives much more enjoyable and rewarding. So if you plan to continue your diving education while you're here, we offer a range of packages tailored to your desires, and in combination will improve your diving skills and experience significantly. Packages range in cost, time commitment and level of detail but all our packages offer a substantial discount from the individual prices.


For those with a longer time on the island and a passionate interest in the marine environment we are in the process of designing a one month marine expedition. They will typically include full diving courses to Advanced open water (or other courses if you already have this qualification), marine biology training, some fun diving and a greater chance to get involved in the projects we're running.
