Certified shark guide
Shark feeding dives keep gaining momentum, so do accidents of facilitating operators and participants on these dives. Most incidents could be avoided, but most often, neither operators nor participants are capable of identifying a tricky situation or a scenario that starts to get out of hand. To eliminate this shortcoming of operators and their staff, SharkSchool™ developed a course to teach guides on how to work with sharks on a professional level, either as a dive guide taking guests closer to sharks or as part of a shark attracting operation.
The core of this course revolves around all essential aspects of "shark attracting with scent trails." How to predict a critical or dangerous situation? Which species should be fed in what manner, if at all? How to interfere & intercept a differently behaving shark? What does every dive guest need to know before a dive? How to treat wounds (triage under- and above water, diver and crew duties...) and others. Contact the office for a full list of topics for this nine-day workshop.
IMPORTANT: You must own a Dive Master certification or equivalent (no exception). There is an exam at the end of the workshop (in-water and classroom).
