Specialty Course – Naturalist


Do you often get out of the water and hear everyone talking about the amazing marine life they all saw, and wonder why you didn’t see anything that they mentioned?

This course will open your eyes to the underwater world and you will develop a thirst for more knowledge as a result of participating. No longer will you be content to just swim over the bottom – every rock, every weed, every pylon will stop you in your tracks for a closer examination!


The PADI Underwater Naturalist course is designed to create an awareness and sense of responsibility and respect for the aquatic environment. It is an introductory course to aquatic organisms and their environment. We also look at the impact of man on the underwater realm, the mythology and the relationships between aquatic animals and human interaction.
