PADI Whale Shark Awareness Distinctive Speciality Course
Dieser Kurs wird von einem deutschsprachigen Tauchlehrer durchgeführt, es liegen derzeit aber nur englischsprachige Unterrichtsmaterialien vor.
We aim to teach you about the biology, behaviour and distribution of Whale Sharks as well as conservation status and Whale Shark research worldwide. You will learn how to plan all aspects of a dive/snorkel with Whale Sharks, paying special attention to non-impact diving/snorkelling practices. The importance of Whale Shark monitoring activities will be stressed and the Whale Shark Photo ID website introduced as an example of how to get involved in Whale Shark conservation
You don’t have to have a dive qualification to dive with Whale Sharks but it helps! The PADI Whale Shark Awareness Distinctive Speciality course introduces divers and snorkellers to the world's largest fish, whilst teaching the proper techniques for minimal impact recreational diving. This ensures everyone has a good time with no adverse effects on the sharks, their habitat or their behaviour.
