ECO DIVER / SNORKELER

Biodiversity Eco Resort is proud to announce our new Eco diver certification packages and Eco diver programs for certified divers and non-divers alike. These programs have been specifically designed for a new age of diving where the greatest understanding of the marine environment and its ecology and protection and integration of this into our lives is vital for the future of our seas.

During our Eco diver packages you will not only learn to dive in an environmentally friendly way, but we will teach you more about the ecosystem as a whole to develop your awareness of the different marine environments, what makes them work and learn how we and future can be a force to make changes for the better and do not worry if you are not in our ecology packages are also available to everyone of ages, they are for those who just want to learn more about our amazing underwater world we have information programs that can be combined with snorkelling. If you’re not a snorkeler we can teach you this too.

With a greater understanding of what lies beneath the waves, not only do we have a better chance of protecting it but with each dive and in water experience we can enjoy what we are seeing more and more.

BECOME AN ECO DIVER

The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the souls of those who look below the surface

As divers, we love nature and to experience different dive sites we travel to different countries. Tourism however is one of the threats to the coral reef ecosystem and its local populations. Bad diving practices such as, snorkelers walking on corals, divers kicking corals and collecting shells, feeding fish, trash from day boats and liveaboards; to name a few issues. Many of these problems can be avoided by making everyone aware. This is the philosophy we try to work on every day, with our own divers, snorkelers and guests as well as the local community, being aware of bad practices and how to change them is the first and most important step. So with that in mind We offer three Eco diver course options;

1. Eco diver starter pack
