PADI Underwater Naturalist

PADI Underwater NaturalistAre you fascinated with aquatic life? Always wondering what that fish is and why it always dances under a coral head whenever you get close? If you’re engrossed with life under the surface, the Underwater Naturalist Specialty course is especially for you.
