The Fun Part
You’ll find you enjoy your dives even more when you recognize the creatures that you see. The fun part about this course is you can use the skills you learn on every scuba diving vacation because once you learn the main fish families and characteristics it will help you decipher the species you see all over the world.
For example, a butterfly fish in Hawaii has a similar shape to a butterfly fish in Southeast Asia, but their colors and markings maybe wildly different. If you know what fish family it belongs to, it becomes much easier to look up the local name or at least be able to intelligently ask the local scuba instructor what you saw. That works better than asking about a “yellow thingy with a funny tail fin.”
What You Learn
During two dives you gain experience in looking for and identifying the fascinating fish you see underwater. You’ll learn:
- How to identify characteristics of local fish families and species.
- Fish survey techniques and strategies.
- How to practice fish identification dive planning, organization and procedures.
1 Dive – 7am – 10am
2 Dives – 7am - Noon
Your Next Adventure
If you haven't already completed your Advanced Open Water Certification it is the perfect next step. This specialty will count as one of the 5 dives you need to complete your requirements. If you've already done your Advanced class think about the Rescue Diver Class and you are well on your way to becoming a Master Scuba Diver!
