Our commitments to taking care and giving back
The first dive center to offer this unique PADI AWARE Advanced Open Water Diver course
Enthusiastically supported by our buddies at PADI AWARE and PADI (“An amazing initiative!”), The Dive Bus PADI AWARE Advanced Open Water Diver course is perfect for families or friends wanting to get more from every dive, by improving their dive skills and confidence, while discovering simple ways to take care of our reefs and oceans, every day.
And … it’s a LOT of fun!
In 2016, we took our efforts to supporting Project AWARE, now PADI AWARE to protect, preserve and respect our beautiful, fragile underwater environment to a new level.
By making a donation to Project AWARE on behalf of each PADI dive course student we certify, we help create AWARE Ambassadors for the oceans.
In 2016, we earned the PADI Green Star™ Dive Center Award for “demonstrating dedication to the environment and conservation – sustainable tourism – across a range of business functions.” We do this by focusing on “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle” and making it easy for our divers to do the same.
In June 2016, we adopted our house reef through Project AWARE’s Adopt a Dive Site program, now PADI AWARE’s Adopt the Blue and run FREE dive site clean up dives with divers just like you.
Together, we keep the reef as clean and healthy as possible, so you’ll enjoy diving ‘our back yard’ as much as we do 🙂
