“I completed your new course and I really loved it. I can't wait to dive with you again so I can start identifying things! The course had the perfect amount of scientific info (for me, a lay-person!) and the taxonomy overview was a really useful framework to make sense of the biological structures.” - Zoe
“I have thoroughly enjoyed your PADI South Pacific Coral Reef Ecology Specialty course, which was very informative and a sincere joy; thank you for putting it together and offering it.” - Jean-Paul

"I really enjoyed doing this course & learnt a lot about Coral Reefs & the importance of protecting these habitats. I would happily do any other courses that you develop in the future. It was great to be able to learn online in this format while we can't travel right now. I would highly recommend this course to fellow SCUBA Divers & travellers. :) " - Renee
"What a great course! There was certainly a lot particularly about corals and sea grasses that I didn't know and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Well done on putting it together." - Anita
"I have recently completed this course and found it thoroughly informative and enjoyable, particularly the fish identification section. With plans to visit Fiji in the future, this has made me doubly excited and I cannot wait to put my course knowledge to the test! Definitely recommend." - Louisa
Hi! We're Sara Carlson & Matthew Norman
We are PADI Scuba Instructors running our own conservation-minded dive centre in Fiji.
As well as teaching and leading dives, we have years of experience managing marine conservation expeditions and teaching reef ecology, so it's no surprise that we have a deep love for our oceans.
We want to share our passion for the marine world with as many people as possible, so we have created our own online reef ecology courses to bring the majesty of coral reefs to you.
