“What was the name of that cool fish we saw on our last dive?” It’s one of the most frequent questions our guides hear on the boat (and not surprisingly…Hawaii has over 650 wonderful fish species!) By learning how to classify fish into different families, recognizing unique behavior, and identifying their habitats, you’ll gain a new appreciation of what it takes to name just about any species (plus impress all your nerdy ichthyophile friends!)
Over two dives with one of our experience instructors you’ll also learn about strategies used in fish surveys from conservation efforts like REEF and Project AWARE. In addition, these dives may be used for credit toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification (bonus!)
