What awaits you
The PADI Mediteranean Sea Turtle Specialty consists of 2 parts:
Part One: Theory . The theory is accessible to everyone. Regardless of whether you are a diver or not (yet). In just over an hour you can learn many great facts about sea turtles worldwide and in the Mediterranean via Zoom. For example, which species are actually found in the Mediterranean, how you can tell them apart and what we can do to protect them. The online theory costs €50, of which €25 goes directly to our Xenios project to protect sea turtles. After completing the theory, you will receive your first diploma from us. This allows you to take part in the practical part of the diving course with us. You can simply order the online theory HERE.
Second part: 2 dives. Join us on two dives and be there when we go in search of sea turtles. Help us with behavior analysis and database creation and test your knowledge from the online course. Can you correctly identify the sea turtles underwater?
