Sharks need you!  Pair your next Palm Beach Shark Dive with a PADI Shark Conservation class to learn about these amazing animals.  Sharks are crucial members of our marine ecosystems.  They are important indicators of global ocean health, and some of our favorite fish to observe in the wild. 

Start the day with a quick classroom session.  During the class, learn what is causing the rapid decline in shark populations worldwide.  Understand the actions you can take to become a knowledgeable and passionate shark defender. 

Then, master skills to identify local shark species by their distinct features.  By being informed, you can dispel misconceptions and act to protect sharks.  

Next, head offshore with one of our PADI Instructors by your side and put your new knowledge to practical use.  Observe wild sharks in their natural environment as you dive local reefs and wrecks. The shark class price includes your shark dives.

The Shark Conservation Class dives take place on wrecks and reefs in up to 90 feet of water.  An Advanced Open Water certification is not required, but participants must be comfortable diving to those depths in a drift environment. 


The PADI Shark Conservation class is a Project AWARE specialty certification.  Did you know that Pura Vida Divers is 100% AWARE?  Being 100% AWARE means we donate $10.00 from every certification we issue to fund Project AWARE’s conservation programs. 

This is just one of many efforts made by Pura Vida Divers as an industry leader in support of local, national and global marine conservation initiatives.
