April was Project AWARE`s Big Shark Shout Out Month, and as part of this we ran our second AWARE Shark Conservation Diver Specialty Course with great success.
We hosted a theory evening at our store for divers and non-divers alike, and it was standing room only. We even had a real live shark stop by for a visit!
Then we completed the 2 shark aware dives on our group trip to the Bahamas, and we are pleased to have certified even more AWARE Shark Conservation Divers!
We`re also really pleased that PADI has allowed the Shark Conservation Diver adventure dive to count towards the PADI Advanced Open Water Course! We already have some students who`ve taken that option, who are now Advanced Open Water Divers who are very aware and passionate about sharks, so they can act as Shark Embassadors! We think this is a great way to get divers passionate about this cause early on.
Thank you Project AWARE and PADI for leading the way and providing with this great course to help us educate our divers!
