The PADI Underwater Naturalist Course with Academy of Scuba

Look closer to see more on your next dive. Understand your underwater environment on a more complex level, so you can enjoy your dives even more. Look for symbioses, predator/prey and other relationships between aquatic plant and animal life. Learn not just what fish and animals are, but how they interact with each other and the environment.

Why Choose AOS? 

We are lucky to have qualified marine biologists on our instructional staff. Melbourne’s temperate waters are have a wonderful ecosystem that not many people know about. Being part of the temperate southern reef system, 30% of species found here are endemic to Victorian waters. Learn about this, why some creatures behave the way they do and what their role is in the aquatic ecosystem as well as so much more on this course. You will never look at the critters and reefs the same way again.
