Background

This is your opportunity to experience the life of a marine biologist, learn what they know and provide yourself with the tools and knowledge to enter the world of marine conservation. It might be purely for self improvement, or as a step towards a career in marine conservation as part of your university education. Freestyle Divers Academy provides you the perfect opportunity to blend diving with marine conservation, developing both skill sets collaboratively.

Project leader

James Campbell, our resident marine biologist, has worked all over the world educating people of all ages and levels on the importance of the oceans and what we can do to ensure that we and our children’s children will have them for years to come.
