Sharks are often wrongly portrayed by the media as dangerous and a threat to divers. In fact sharks are unique and play a crucial role in keeping our ocean healthy. Unfortunately some sharks species are close to becoming extinct and will be lost forever. The Grey Nurse Sharks which are regularly seen on our boat dives at Broughton Island is listed as Critically Endangered. The Project Aware Shark Conservation Course provides valuable information about sharks and the major threats to their existence, as well as some conservation management strategies and the reasons why we should be fighting to save the amazing creatures, but best of all you will learn what action we can take to give sharks a fighting chance.
The course includes two dives where your instructor will discuss environmental issues which affect the wellbeing of the sharks. This course may be counted towards the prestigious Master Scuba Diver rating.
Diving option. The course can be completed as two shore dives but we recommend the course be completed with our double boat dive to Broughton Island. If you are a certified nitrox diver you may receive a nitrox fill in your 2nd tank at a discounted rate if you specify at time of booking!
Your course cost includes a $10 donation to Project A.W.A.R.E. At your discretion you may choose to match or better this donation to help this worthwhile cause.
