One of the many duties of a PADI Instructor is to inspire student divers to behave in an environmentally friendly way underwater during dive activities, as well as whilst on land!
For the last few weeks, groups of UK-based students have visited our Gaya Island beach house for a few nights of camping and PADI courses as well as participate in a variety of activities we offer, such as kayaking, snorkeling and jungle trekking!
Every student has learned so much about the various plights the natural environment faces in our local area of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park and our experienced PADI professionals are no strangers to these pollutants, particularly marine debris.
It is due to the passion of the dive educators of our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre that any and all certified student divers find themselves motivated to contributing their efforts to protecting and preserving the environment. The PADI system of dive education encourages such role model behavior as soon as an Instructor Development Course (IDC) and Instructor Examination (IE) candidate is certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. As a newly qualified PADI Instructor, they may conduct the AWARE Coral Reef Conservation Specialty and the Project AWARE Specialty, which are both so rewarding to teach when integrating your own experience with the knowledge development!
