Join an elite group of divers who are more than tourists, but explorers, adventurers and conservationists.
The fun part about the PADI National Geographic Diver certification is the opportunity to participate in an exploration project. You'll learn to observe and explore like an underwater scientist.
What You Learn
The insight and training you gain during this program will broaden your awareness and take your diving skills to a new level. You will complete a minimum of two dives during this certification. As part of the National Geographic Diver Specialty course, you fine-tune your buoyancy, then set off on your exploration project.
Whether it’s a survey of plant life or a study of water temperature variation, this project is your chance to think, observe and document like those who dive for science and discovery. On your next dive you’ll hone your navigation skills, then dive into an aquatic life exercise – which may also be part of your exploration project.
