Shark Specialty Course Outline

It’s a well-known fact that the world’s shark population is dwindling rapidly. This decline is due to the shark’s one and only predator…man. Whether it is a lack of knowledge about shark behavior in general or over zealous fishermen, sharks are indeed in trouble. The “Dark Ages” of Shark knowledge are now part of your past when you join Stuart Cove’s Shark Awareness Course. The simple goal of this course is to introduce you to the shark. Through an academic program presented by a multi-media presentation, you will learn how to identify different types of sharks, understand some of their behaviors, and learn why this animal is so important to the overall oceanic ecosystems.

The course will also teach you proper behavior for diving with sharks and will finish with you completing two shark dives – a free swim with sharks and a shark feeding dive. Upon completion of the academic and open water sections you will be awarded a specialty certification. Included in the course fee are the academic presentations, our 2-tank Shark Adventure, certification fees, patch, and certificate.

Must be a Certified Diver. Academic session (either at home or lecture with an instructor) MUST be completed prior to participating in the dives in order to receive credit for the specialty course.

Message from Stuart

Since I began my career in diving over 20 years ago, I first observed and then interacted with the shark population around the island. Those early experiences paved the way for our participation in Hollywood blockbusters such as “Never Say Never Again” and “Jaws IV: The Revenge” where I worked as the films “Shark Wrangler”. The outgrowth of those experiences led to the development of our Shark Adventure™ dives which we offer regularly.

Let’s go diving soon…. with the sharks!
