PADI Dive Against Debris – Conservation Course

Course details Price & booking

Conservation and PADI AWARE

Cabo Private Guide is a 100% AWARE 5 star PADI Dive Center.

This means we donate some of our profits to ocean conservation through the PADI AWARE organization.

We also commit to offering a range of specialist courses that educate everyone (not just divers in some cases!) about the decline of the ocean and what we need to do at the grass-routes level to help save our seas.

Take a look at the marine conservation courses we offer here at Cabo Private Guide!

What is it?

The journey of our trash is vast. Human waste is never-ending. One truck load of trash is emptied into the sea every minute.

Microplastics you can’t even see are ingested by fish, large plastics are swallowed by all animals at sea and hundreds of miles of discarded ghost fishing nets account for some of the most devastating effects of human impact.

PADI AWARE’s Dive Against Debris course invites you to spend a day with the dive team learning about how trash gets into the oceans, how you will safely remove it from the dive area and how to record it on the LARGEST citizen scientist underwater international database.

So far, collective efforts have enabled 2 significant scientific papers to be published filling a critical data gap.

Join us to protect the underwater world!
