Padi Shark Conservation and Awareness Diver Course

The Padi Shark Conservation and Awareness course is a new "Project Aware" course.
It gives you an opportunity to study and dive with 2 species of these beautiful marine animals.
The Caribbean Grey Reef Shark is common here and is easy to find. The Nurse Shark however is somewhat more difficult to find, hence there is good reason why this sedentary shark is known as the "Couch Potato" of the dive world.
