Become a Green Fins dive guide
As a dive professional leading and guiding scuba divers, you have the ability to positively influence diver behavior and help protect coral and other marine life on every dive. If you can manage your divers and prevent them from causing damage, then you are helping protect coral reefs, one dive, at a time.

This course will build on your existing scuba diving knowledge by providing you with the skills and confidence to conduct more environmentally friendly diving trips. It has one simple goal: to reduce the negative impacts of scuba diving on the underwater environment.
