The PADI Underwater Naturalist Course

Look closer to see more on your next dive. Look for symbioses, predator/prey and other relationships between aquatic plant and animal life. Learn not just what fish and animals are, but how they interact with each other and the environment.

The Fun Part

Learn about why some creatures behave the way they do and what their role is in the aquatic ecosystem.

  • Comfortable you are with it
  • Performance you get from it
  • You can care for it

What You Learn

  • The major aquatic life groupings, interactions and factual information that dispels negative myths.
  • The role of aquatic plants, food chains and predator prey relationships
  • Responsible interactions with aquatic life
  • The underwater naturalist’s view of organisms and their roles in the environment

You put this information into practice during your two open water dives.
