The PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty course is designed to be an introduction to the underwater aquatic environment; helping you identify the marine life you see and develop safe and responsible interaction with it while you are diving. You will be surprised how many wonderful creatures you start to recognize on your dives and the fascinating interactions they have with their environment.
Through class discussions and on two scuba dives, you’ll learn the key differences between the terrestrial and aquatic worlds, major aquatic life groupings, interactions and information that dispels myths and responsible interactions with aquatic life.
