Interaction I, II & III

All workshops revolve around ADORE-SANE, the world's first and only shark-human interaction concept.

Interaction I

This workshop focuses on the interaction aspects of different shark species. It will be taught what to look for when facing a shark, which factor(s) influence(s) the situation the most and how to interpret an encounter. Everything learned in the classroom will also be tried and tested with and among free roaming sharks within changing situations to give a thorough introduction to different scenarios.

• Introduction to ADORE-SANE 
• Daily in-water exercises (related to ADORE-SANE) 
• Detailed introduction in shark behavior and interaction with sharks
• Overview of shark accidents, their analysis and interpretation 
• Do’s & don’ts

Interaction II

(Introduction I is a prerequisite to participate. Upon request, minimum 6 participants)

• Daily lectures on ADORE-SANE 
• Daily in-water exercises on shark-human interaction (related to lectures given)
• Interpretation of signaling among sharks
• In-water recreation of accident scenarios
• Additional exercises while snorkeling, freediving and Scuba diving

Interaction III

This is the most intense workshop and is exclusively taught in the Bahamas at the SERC - Shark Education & Research Center. This workshop in Grand Cay is only suitable for divers who want nothing else than interacting with sharks under different circumstances, get up close and personal with these animals, like to have a glimpse into actual shark research and even be part of it.

This course and the island do not cater to divers who need a certain level of luxury or service, and can’t deal with a simple island life. When SharkSchool™ decided to use this island as the base for SERC sharks were the only consideration with regards to research and education in shark-human interaction and communication.

• Daily lectures on special topics of shark-human interaction 
• In-water exercises on shark-human interaction
• In-water recreation of accident scenarios 
• Special interactions at dusk/night (freediving, snorkeling)
• Introduction to animal - human communication
• Introduction to the (spiritual) relationships with animals among different cultures
