Sometimes the sheer volume of marine life and brightly coloured corals surrounding you can mean that you actually miss a lot of what you are seeing. There is just too much to take in to be able to study behaviours and eco-systems to find out the really interesting little bits of information on marine life. Look closer to see more and know what you are looking for by taking the PADI Underwater Naturalist course.

Learn what it is you should be looking for — symbioses, predator/prey and other relationships between aquatic plant and animal life. Learn what the fish and animals are but go beyond that too and learn about how they interact with one another and the environment and behaviours of specific species to look out for. Don’t just watch the bumphead parrotfish as they traipse across the top of the reef, learn why they are making that journey each morning and learn what else they will keep themselves busy with in their daily lives.

Underwater Naturalist

On the PADI Underwater Naturalist course you will learn about the major aquatic life groupings, interactions and factual information that may be quite the opposite to what you have always been taught. Learn about the vital role of aquatic plants and how they fit in with the food chain and also delve into the relationships that you see between predators and prey. You will also learn about responsible interactions with aquatic life and the underwater naturalist’s view of the roles of organisms in the environment.
