Ecology diving programs

To take care of the Ocean requires an understanding of its components and the key role that it plays in our planet’s health. Marine life and a healthy Ocean are essential for the well-being of our planet.

If you are thinking about taking a further step in to a better understanding of our Oceans, take a look to our Ecology Programs.

These are some of the programs available to you:

Coral Identification

Coral reefs are the building blocks of many ocean ecosystems and are the producers of half of the Earth’s oxygen and absorb nearly one third of the carbon dioxide generated by human activity.

This program teaches you the skills and concepts required to recognize and identify common families of coral species.

Blue Oceans Commitment

Environmental Awarness

  • Commit to personally protect the environment
  • Prevent others from causing damage through positive action and motivation
  • Support useful projects and organizations dedicated to marine protection
  • If possible, collect garbage on your dives – but only if doing so does not cause more damage to the environment
  • If possible, cut hanging ropes and collect floating nets and plastics
  • Inform your buddy or the crew on the surface if you were not able to remove the net
  • Never eat shark fins, whale meat, turtle eggs, etc.
  • Report immediately violations of the ban on the use of marine animals as souvenirs

Responsible use of Resources

  • Shower only as long as required to get clean, especially in areas with minimal ability to store/purify water
  • Wash your equipment in the provided container, and only when necessary – often it’s enough to clean equipment thoroughly at the end of the dive trip
  • Turn off the lights when you aren’t using them
  • Use alternative transportation or walk instead of driving
  • Avoid unnecessary waste – food plans and shopping lists help save you money, and prevent purchasing unnecessary food that may go to waste

Avoid Garbage

  • Never throw inorganic waste into the sea – Plastics decompose incredibly slowly
  • Minimize the production of garbage: Use reusable coffee mugs and lunch boxes, glass or metal bottles and shopping bags
  • Do not bring unnecessary packaging to the resort
  • Dispose of your waste in as eco-friendly a manner as possible
  • If you smoke, dispose of cigarette butts in the proper receptacle, not on the ground or in the water

Dealing with the Underwater World

  • Only use a swim-through if you can do so without touching anything
  • Don’t swim or snorkel too close to the reef
  • Don’t touch or break corals
  • Use labeled entrances/exits for the water
  • Don’t disturb the sand, since it reduces visibility and smothers corals
  • Don’t hunt or bother animals
  • Don’t touch animals unless properly trained
  • Don’t feed animals
  • Don’t take souvenirs from the sea – broken coral pieces or empty snail shells still serve as useful habitat
  • Only place a reef hook where it will not damage or disturb the reef
  • Do not disturb animals or habitat to improve your photo opportunity
