Sea Turtle Awareness

The PADI Sea Turtle Awareness specialty course is a Project AWARE supportive course which teaches you more about sea turtles, their lives and why they are important.


In order to enroll in the PADI Sea Turtle Awareness course, all you need to have is a desire to learn more about sea turtles. There is no minimum age requirement for this course, but you will be required to participate in a classroom discussion and view a PowerPoint presentation, which includes pictures of various species of sea turtles.

Course Structure

During your Sea Turtle specialty course, you will learn about sea turtles and how they breed, grow, feed, migrate and interact with one another, and the importance they play in our aquatic realm. Your instructor will discuss the different species of sea turtles and explain ways to identify them and determine which group they belong to. You will also learn about the specific threats they face, how they are affected by humans and additionally, what you can do as an individual to help protect them.

Once you have you completed the Sea Turtle specialty course, you will receive a temporary Sea Turtle certification card, which you can start using right away! You will receive your permanent card about 30-45 days after you have been certified.
