The Project AWARE Shark Conservation course is designed to increase awareness of the importance of sharks and the threats they are facing. As an apex predator, sharks are crucial to marine ecosystems yet are experiencing a global decline.

We run this course locally, with theory being held in one of our classrooms at our Takapuna dive shop. The AWARE Shark Conservation course also includes two dives, which take place on the coast.

During the course, you'll learn how to identify local shark species and their characteristics, what is causing their rapid reduction in numbers and how you can help stop this catastrophic loss.

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. If you come on the optional dives, you will need to supply your own scuba gear including a computer, or alternatively you can hire at a competitive rate.

Why learn to dive with Performance Diver?

This is a very important question! There are many dive schools out there, so why would you choose ours?
  • We have nice small class sizes to prioritise your learning, with course groups that are well below the maximum allowed by PADI.
  • We're always going diving! We have heaps of shore dives, day trips, weekend adventures and more for you to get in the water! Every weekend throughout the season there are trips planned, so you're never short of options. Our social nights are a great way to make new dive buddies and new friends.
  • ​​As a Performance Diver student you get exclusive offers and pricing on a huge range of dive gear. If you're not ready to commit to buying your own then no worries - we have heaps of rental gear at a great rate for you. We want you to go diving, so we'll make it as accessible as we can! 
  • ​Our Instructors are awesome - Here at Performance Diver we only teach PADI courses, and all of our PADI Instructors are here for one reason - they love diving! Sharing the underwater world with you is such an amazing experience and we're privileged to be able to do just that.

Course Prerequisites:
