WHAT WILL I LEARN DURING THE PADI SEA TURTLE SPECIALTY COURSE WITH DXDIVERS?

PADI and Project AWARE bring you the Sea Turtle Awareness specialty course to do just that: bring awareness to this species of turtle that has been facing population decline due to various environmental factors. The goal of Project AWARE is to teach divers about the sea turtle species, how to identify them, and their role in the overall ecosystem. You will learn how to properly identify different sea turtles and how to log markings if you're unable to identify them at depth.

WHAT IS THE "FULL DXDIVERS EXPERIENCE"?

Glad you asked! Here at DXDivers, we’re proud to have an all encompassing facility and dive boat to provide a convenient and relaxing scuba experience. We have a full retail store equipped with over 100 diving brands and over 3000 unique products. On-site, we also have a training pool out back and several classrooms upstairs. Once you’re certified, check out our drive-thru tank fill station so you don’t have to lug your tanks through the store. Best of all, you can hop on our 46’ Newton custom dive boat, the Lady Go Diver, docked less than a mile from the shop. Did we mention we’re the only dive shop in South Florida to have both a full retail dive shop and our own charter boat? We manage every aspect of our operation to better serve you and provide the best possible diving experience.

ARE FILLS INCLUDED DURING THE COURSE?

Yes, both air and nitrox fills are included throughout the duration of the course. If you do not have your own tanks, rentals will be included.

SHOULD I BRING MY OWN FOOD, SNACKS OR DRINKS TO THE BOAT?

On the Lady Go Diver, we provide complimentary light snacks, cold drinking water and soda. We highly encourage you to bring your own snacks and drinks so you can feel comfortable while diving with us.

I PLAN TO TAKE ADVANCED OPEN WATER (AOW), WILL MY ADVENTURE DIVES COUNT TOWARDS ANY SPECIALTIES?

Yes! Whichever adventure dives you complete will count towards the first dive of each respective speciality. For example, the PADI Navigation Specialty requires 3 dives. For Advanced Open Water (AOW), Navigation is required to earn the certification. Once you complete AOW, you will only need 2 more dives to earn your PADI Navigation Specialty certification.
