Marine Conservation starts here!
Get involved with our Marine Conservation activities! You will find everything you need at the Freestyle Divers Academy, including marine biology classes, laboratory facilities, coral nurseries, artificial reef creation and tailored marine conservation internship programs!
If you are curious about the ocean, marine life and how it all works, you can learn about our local ecosystem from our resident marine conservation team.
Moreover, you can also help us to protect it!
Our full curriculum of courses, workshops and internships provide something to suit everyone. You can get started with a weekend introduction or construct a personalized program that could go all the way up to a three month residential internship.
Certified divers will love our Ecological Diver course, it’s a great way to get started! All you need to do is take the online academic course, then put your knowledge into practice during our one day in-water practical sessions. There is also a non-diver version of the course if you haven’t taken your Open Water course yet.
If you do want to learn to dive at the same time, we can construct a personalized program for you to gain experience in both diving and marine conservation.
Are you already a student in marine conservation? In that case, we have everything you need to grow your understanding, as well as the opportunity to participate on practical scientific dives and laboratory work.
While you are here we can help you perfect your diving skills too! We have very experienced technical diving instructors on staff who will coach you on trim, buoyancy and propulsion to make your scientific dives effortless.
We would also welcome your active contribution to the health of our local marine ecosystem. We run ongoing projects for reef monitoring, building and monitoring coral nurseries as well as the design and construction of artificial reefs.
Become an Ecological Diver!
The diveRaid Ecological Diver course is a core module of our marine biology education system and we have both diving and non-diving options for this course. Click to find out more!
Marine Conservation Internships
Every month we start a new marine conservation internship program. You can decide whether you would like to stay for a week, two weeks or a month (even longer customized programs are available on request). This is the perfect way to broaden your general understanding about marine biology or specialist knowledge about marine science.
Help us protect our reef and coral ecosystems
Join our coral reef nursery, coral propagation and artificial reef projects to gain hands-on experience as well as the academic theory to help to protect and restore our reefs. We can expand this topic to provide a central thread for your marine conservation internship.
Marine conservation for kids!
If you want to get the kids off their iPads and doing something healthy and educational, we have some really fun programs for children. They will learn all about our marine ecosystem with some adapted marine biology education, collect plankton and analyze it in our lab, go diving or snorkeling then paint their experience on a tile that will become part of our artificial reef.This is the ideal way to get your children started with marine science activities.
