Coral Identification

Min. Age


Pool Sessions


No. of Dives


Coral reefs are the building blocks of many ocean ecosystems. This programme teaches you the skills and concepts required to recognise and identify common families of coral species.

Pool and open water sessions are not required but the course includes a detailed academic session, where we will ensure you are comfortable with the information covered in the course.

This course is part of a series of ecology specialties and are suitable for divers and non-divers, who wish to learn more about the world’s fascinating aquatic realm. The course can be delivered online, in-person and also combined with real open water experiences for qualified divers. This makes it an excellent choice for children and families, as well as being a great addition to a trip.
