Diversity of Life around Koh Tao

Koh Tao boasts an array of diverse marine life and has a variety of dive sites from shallow reefs to deep granite pinnacles. There are plenty of ideal dive sites for you to conduct this popular PADI Specialty.

The PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty course can be scheduled over 1 day. You will teach your students how to view aquatic ecosystems objectively and help them to understand the intricate interactions and relationships between marine organisms.

The PADI Underwater Naturalist specialty course requires your students to identify 2 types of aquatic plants, 4 types of vertebrates and 4 types of invertebrates as well as locate and identify a number of inter-relationships demonstrating symbiosis.

Throughout the course you will discuss signs of human effects upon the environment and teach your students how to demonstrate minimal passive and responsible interactions and the necessary diving techniques that will enable them to do this.
