What to Expect

Prior to the course, divers must read the AWARE Shark Conservation Study Guide and complete the knowledge reviews at the end. Print and bring your knowledge reviews to class with you.

On the morning of your dives, we'll meet at the shop, get geared up and head out to the dive site. Divers do need to provide their own transportation to and from the shop and dive sites. After two dives, we'll meet back at the shop to debrief, log dives, and wrap things up for the day.

This course does count towards the Master Scuba Diver rating.
