Conservation, Education, Research and Expeditions are the four operational arms of Shark Guardian founded by professional divers, shark researchers and conservationists. Building on our education projects, we are very proud to offer this program to anyone who is interested to learn more about sharks and get immediately involved and active in shark research for conservation.
Anyone can participate and complete the Shark Guardian Diver program while scuba diving, snorkeling or even paddle boarding. The Shark Guardian Diver program can be combined with any ongoing scuba diving, free diving or snorkeling course or when these activities are being done recreationally.
Only Shark Guardian Dive Centers can conduct the Shark Guardian Diver Program. The Shark Guardian Diver is not a dive certification and therefore participants do not receive a diver certification card. However participants do receive a certificate of completion once they have fully completed the program.
Visit our Shark Guardian Dive Center Page to find dive centers who conduct the Shark Guardian Diver Program.
