Underwater Naturalist course

The purpose and philosophy The PADI Underwater Naturalist course is to focus on responsible interactions with the living marine environment. This means to expand your knowledge of aquatic life and to help you to interact with the living underwater world based on objective assessments and observation with the environment.

If you’re fascinated by marine life underwater the PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty course is an introduction to interacting with the underwater aquatic environment. At Kiwidiver we will show you about the different major aquatic life groupings and how they interact so that you understand what you are watching in the underwater environment. You’ll no longer see ‘fish’, but individual species with distinct strategies for surviving in a complex, interactive ecosystem.
