Your Next Adventure
Since fish life and coral reefs go hand in hand, it also makes sense to learn about fish identification with the AWARE Fish ID course.
You may also want to brush up on your underwater photography skills so that you can document and capture images of the conditions of the reefs and species you’re encountering.
All student divers of any level are required to complete the PADI medical questionnaire prior to starting course. Any student answering ‘Yes’ to one or more of the questions may require medical clearance prior to commencing in water activities. A copy of the medical form can be found here.
