Few things seem to fascinate divers more than sharks, coral, fish, turtles and wrecks. We have courses that cover the last three items on this list. This course covers the two items that seem to fascinate many divers most: sharks and coral reefs.

■ While the general public maintains an egregiously ill-informed attitude toward sharks, most divers know better. In fact, many divers actively seek out opportunities to observe these incredible predators in their natural environment. You don’t have to dive with sharks, however, to learn more about them. Simply come to this class.

■ Each stand of coral is an entire ecosystem in and of itself. A colony of complex animals, corals support not only themselves, but other creatures with whom they maintain a symbiotic relationship. This is why coral reefs are home to large schools of fish and other animals.

This single class will help you better understand these two, very different forms of aquatic life and identify common species of both. It will help add considerable enjoyment to your next dive.
