Coral Identification​

Hawaiian Diving Adventures

Coral Identification: “What do you call that one green and purple basketball brain-looking coral we saw?” In this course, you learn:
 
  • how to identify hard and soft corals
  • the different types and species
  • how and where coral polyps grow, eat, and reproduce
  • what organisms interact with the coral to help create, protect, and preserve these ecosystems that we love to dive
 
The Coral Identification specialty program teaches you the skills and concepts required to recognize and identify common families of coral species. Students also learn about the life cycles of coral and how they interact with the marine environment overall.
 
2 Dives – $199
 
* Gratuity for the captain and crew is voluntary, but if you have a great time on your dives, it is customary to tip 10-20%.
 

All of our teaching staff are active instructors with at least two of the three scuba diving certification agencies. Hawaiian Diving Adventures predominantly offers SSI specialty courses and certifications, however we also have active PADI and NAUI dive instructors on staff that can help you complete your dive specialty course with those diver certifying agencies. Prices and requirements will vary by agency.
