Project AWARE Fish Identification

Project AWARE Fish Identification

The PADI Project AWARE Fish ID course helps you to identify the life you see while diving. The great part about this course is that you learn skills which you'll use on every single dive, ensuring that you recognise the creatures that you see! Once you learn how to identify the basics of a species in the water, it's much easier to identify exactly what it was that you saw.

We run this course locally, with open water dives on the coast where you'll find some of the best shore diving spots in NZ. The theory will be completed in one of our classrooms at our Takapuna dive shop. Alternatively, the Project AWARE Fish ID course can be run while you're enjoying one of our weekend charters!

During the course, you'll learn techniques to correctly identify the wildlife that you see. You'll learn about different categories of underwater life, and how the way an creature looks can have a direct influence on their and other creature's behaviours. Never again will you need to describe a passing fish as "that yellow and blue one".

Some PADI Specialty courses are scheduled on demand, so just get in touch to enquire about the dates for your course!

All required PADI materials are included and for you to keep. The PADI certification fee is also included. You will need to supply your own scuba gear, or alternatively you can hire at a competitive rate. Charter fees are in addition to the course fee.
