AwareCoralReef

Everyone likes to scuba dive or snorkel in warm, clear water on a vibrant coral reef, yet many people know little about what they’re seeing or the importance of reef ecosystems. The AWARE - Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course helps you appreciate the complexity of these habitats and teaches you how you can help conserve these vital systems.

Through classroom discussions, you learn:

  • How coral reefs function and the complex nature of life on a reef.
  • Why coral reefs are so important.
  • Why many coral reefs are in serious trouble.
  • What you can do to prevent further decline.
  • How Project AWARE unites divers and water enthusiasts to make a difference.

 

 

 

 

Cost: $179.00(?).  AWARE Coral Reef Conservation is a dry certification that takes approximately four hours and is completed in our shop.

Requirements – Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world can take this course. There are no prerequisites or age restrictions and no water sessions are required to earn this non-diving certification. The AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation course references information in the digital manual – AWARE - Our World, Our Water – downloadable for free on ProjectAWARE.org. Although this manual is not required for the course, you can read the chapter on coral reefs in preparation for meeting with your instructor.

  • Be aware that PADI specialty classes do not allow students to be in any type of overhead environment making Lanai not a good charter on which to do specialties.
  • Most specialty courses can be completed as beach dives, however, completing them off the boat is an option.
  • You do not need to be a PADI certified diver to do PADI Specialty courses. Equivalent certification from any recognized scuba certification agency is fine (NAUI, SSI, SDI, CMAS, etc.).
  • As with any training, you will need to complete the PADI Medical Questionnaire and get Physician’s clearance if needed.
