The PADI Underwater Naturalist course is ideal for anyone who enjoying looking at marine life while diving! I guess that it means it's perfect for every diver. Learning how to appreciate how the inhabitants of the marine ecosystem interact with and affect each other's lives.

We run this course locally, diving at Leigh coast where you'll find some of the best shore diving spots in NZ. Or you can complete the PADI Underwater Naturalist course on any of our charter weekends. The theory sessions are completed in one of the classrooms at our Takapuna dive store.

During the course, your Instructor will teach you about the inhabitants of your local dive sites. You'll learn how to identify the life that you see as well as how to interact responsibly with the life you encounter. You'll also learn about the crucial role that plants occupy in the marine environment.

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. Any charter fees are in addition to the course cost.
