Earn 3 Specialty certifications in 4 days. Contribute more than just logging a dive or two. Turn dives into vitally important PADI AWARE certifications focusing on ocean threats such as: shark conservation, overfishing, ocean pollution and diver impact. Finish with 2 dives in a successful National Park to see how Ocean protection works!
Start with an introduction to PADI AWARE and responsible dive practices with the PADI AWARE certification course. This can be done either before you arrive to Cabo as a Zoom class or it's just a 2 - 3 hour session in the classroom.
The diving certifications start with a Shark Conservation course. Leaving Cabo San Lucas marina, your instructor will help you look for sharks, rays and skates on the dive site. This course is about observing a shark's environment and possible threats they face. The presentation to this alone is heart rendering and powerful. This is a full day course starting at 7.30am and finishing at 5pm. There will be time for a lunch break although this is not included in the price of the course.
The following certification is Dive Against Debris. It's not just picking up trash! Learn extra dive skills with an instructor about how to rig a lift bag, or practice launching a surface marker buoy. After a classroom lesson about the journey of our trash, you and your dive leader will head out to a known area for finding trash and then log findings on the largest international database worldwide!
The package finishes with a day trip to Cabo Pulmo National Park to see how a fishing ban really works! This area has been protected since the mid-90s and you can really tell! Fish biomass has increased but 450% since then.
Finish your trip with 3 new certifications and an understanding of what we as divers need to do to urgently protect our oceans.
