PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty Course with Dive The World Burma

Get to know your Burma diving neighbours and start to understand the aquatic realm. Be an ambassador for the preservation of our underwater world!!

Your PADI Underwater Naturalist programme will include 2 open water dives which may be conducted in 1 day, and will introduce you to different aquatic life and include an overview of responsible human interactions with aquatic life. You'll see new things, even on the most familiar dive sites, because when know more about symbioses, underwater ecology and habitats, you notice behaviours and see creatures you may previously have missed.

Topics covered include:

  • The planning, organisation, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of diving in different aquatic environments;
  • Factual information that dispels myths of potentially dangerous aquatic life;
  • An overview of basic aquatic life groupings, interactions and associations;
  • Diving techniques used to help preserve bottom dwelling aquatic life and minimise aquatic life disturbance;
  • The key differences between the terrestrial and aquatic worlds.

Open Water certified divers who are at least 10 years old can join this course. The elective Underwater Naturalist dive from the Adventures in Diving programme may count toward the certification requirements for this specialty. Interested in sea life? Then this course is for you!
